Zody condemns harassment of party candidate

first_imgStatewide — From a statement released late last week from Indiana Democratic Chair, John Zody: “The Indiana Democratic Party has become aware of disturbing comments on social media aimed at Sixth District Congressional candidate Jeannine Lee Lake.In addition, the Democratic Party has been told of a disturbing package sent to the candidate by mail that contained materials of an accusatory and harassing nature. It should go without saying that everyone in politics should condemn attacks on candidates that have no place in our discourse, but it has become evident that not everyone believes this.As such, we are making clear our condemnation of any attacks that are harassing to her or her candidacy, including the sharing of any personal information. We call on Congressman Pence and all GOP Party Officers in the Sixth Congressional District to join us in condemning behavior aimed at candidates personally.”last_img read more

Time running out for Bremen’s Bundesliga survival bid

first_imgRelatedPosts Fortuna Duesseldorf relegated after final day defeat, Werder Bremen into playoff EPL: Wolves sink Aston Villa Final day Bundesliga drama awaits Werder, Leverkusen Werder Bremen have spent only one season outside the Bundesliga since it was launched in 1963 and while their run of 13 home matches without a win had left them deep in relegation, troubled club officials are not throwing in the towel.Werder, who played more Bundesliga games (1,896) than any other team, were second from bottom with 25 points from 30 games, three points behind Fortuna Duesseldorf in the promotion-relegation playoff berth. They were also six points away from safety – Mainz in 15th place.Werder went down 1-0 at home to VfL Wolfsburg on Sunday and their next home game does not offer much hope – against Bayern Munich on June 16 where the leaders could secure the title.But before that, Bremen traveled to bottom side Paderborn on Saturday and coach Florian Kohfeldt knew the turnaround must start there.“We have four games to achieve the realistic goal of avoiding relegation. What gives us courage – as strange as it may sound – is the … table. We are not seven or eight points behind, but only three. And we still have four games, so you can catch up three points,” the 37-year-old said.Frank Baumann, the clubs’ sporting director, had not lost faith in his young coach. “I think our chances are still alive, but the bottom line is that only the results count. We’ll give everything and fight until the last game,” he added.Bremen won the last of their four championships in 2004 and narrowly missed out on a Europa League place last season.Kohfeldt said he expected Milot Rashica to return from an ankle injury and Niclas Feullkrug was also set to return next week for the first time since September.The 27-year-old made a good start to the season with two goals and one assist in the first four games before suffering a cruciate ligament injury.“It’s the strikers who we are looking to, to make the difference,” the coach added.

Ighalo sends Man U into FA Cup semifinals

first_imgRelatedPosts Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ EPL: Crystal Palace stun sloppy Man U EPL: Red Devils attack Palace On-loan striker, Odion Ighalo, sent Manchester United into the FA Cup semifinals as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men made hard work of their extra-time victory at 10-man Norwich.The Red Devils became the first side to secure their place in Sunday’s draw as they edged past the Canaries, who were dreaming of Wembley on their first quarterfinal appearance since 1991-92. Much-changed United were made to dig deeper than they could have imagined by the Premier League’s bottom side, who rallied impressively after falling behind to Ighalo’s smart swivelled finish early in the second half.Todd Cantwell levelled in the 75th minute when beating Sergio Romero from distance and Daniel Farke’s side looked capable of snatching it before Klose was sent off for wrestling Ighalo to the ground.Norwich took the game to extra-time and Tim Krul put in an inspired performance between the sticks, but the penalty specialist was denied a chance to win another shootout when Skipper Harry Maguire directed home in the 118th minute.Tags: FA CupManchester UnitedOdion IghaloOle Gunnar SolskjaerRed Devilslast_img read more
