Coach Lou Holtz Endorses Victoria Spartz for Congress

NOBLESVILLE, IN – Following major endorsements by the NRA, Indiana Right to Life and several Indiana State Senators, today Victoria Spartz for Congress announced that Spartz received the endorsement of legendary Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz. In an online ad released by the campaign, Holtz draws on Spartz’s background living under socialism, as well as her strong conservative values in endorsing her campaign:
“[Victoria Spartz] is conservative in thoughts and more importantly she understands what made this country great. She wants to make it even greater…She understands how evil socialism can be to the freedoms that Americans hold,” said Coach Holtz. “Life is a matter of choices. Make a good choice and send Victoria to Congress.”

Coach Lou Holtz is more than a football legend—he’s a Hoosier hero who embodies the great spirit of American values and way of life that we must protect. Coach Holtz has won tough fights on the field, and he knows I’m the conservative fighter who will take on socialists in Washington,” said Victoria Spartz. “I’m proud to be endorsed by Lou Holtz.  He inspires me to fight, win and preserve our freedoms and institutions for generations to come.”
Holtz, the legendary college football coach who led the Notre Dame Fighting Irish to a national championship, is one of the most successful college football coaches of all time.  He is a member of the College Football Hall of Fame. 
Holtz’s endorsement of Spartz follows recent endorsements by the National Rifle Association (NRA), Indiana Right to Life, and two well-known conservatives, former Senator Scott Schneider and Senator Mike Gaskill.

Victoria Spartz is a businesswoman, farmer, finance executive, relentless Indiana State Senator and mom.  Growing up in socialist-controlled Ukraine, Victoria experienced the perils of socialism firsthand. This experience molded her conservative political philosophy: limited government is always better, and financial and healthcare decisions should be made by individuals in the free market, not bureaucrats and special interests.
In many ways, she embodies the American Dream: born overseas, immigrating to the United States 20 years ago after meeting her husband, a born and raised Hoosier, becoming a US Citizen, and working her way up from bank teller to a CPA.  Victoria and Jason have two daughters and live in Noblesville.
