FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) – At the annual GOP Victory Lunch at Allen Count Republican Headquarters, party faithful cheered on the party’s primary winners.

Among those was 25-year-old David Ober, who will battle Democrat Mike Wilber for the state representative seat in the 82nd district. Ober says he, like many fellow Republicans, is tired of government interference in the lives of everyday people. He says he is also opposed to the government telling constituents the best way to spend their money.

“I'm running because like most folks, I'm frustrated with government. I'm frustrated with politicians who say that government is the solution and not the problem and that they know how to spend our money better than we do.”

Ober says he expects education spending and Right to Work legislation to be major talking points in the months leading up to November’s election. He says he supports the controversial labor legislation.

“I'm pro Right to Work. I think it brings jobs to Indiana. And when you have 250,000 Hoosiers out of work, we need it.”

Ober is a native of Albion and a 2005 graduate of Central Noble High School. In 2009, Ober earned his Bachelor of Science in Computer Graphics Technology from Purdue Calumet.
