ROANOKE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - U.S. Senate Candidate Brad Ellsworth is running on an economic theme as he campaigns across the Hoosier state.

He held a news conference at the UAW Union Hall in Roanoke where he talked about creating jobs and other issues.

Ellsworth says, “We need to close the tax loopholes, that incentives companies from moving their jobs over seas. I am all for a globalized economy when American companies, want to expand and move operations overseas to sell overseas, that's fine and I encourage that, but to move and close down a factory in Indiana, Whirlpool for example, like in Evansville, and you can name several move that factory to Mexico or to another country, then re-import those goods here, is uncalled for.”

Ellsworth went on to say more needs to be done to cut red tape that prevents small businesses from growing.
