INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - State Senate Appropriations Chairman Robert
Meeks says he's dropping his re-election bid this year because of
Meeks is a Republican from LaGrange. He suffered a partially
block artery in 2007 that required stents to be implanted. He says
he then suffered a stroke in February.
Meeks has represented Senate District 13 in northeastern Indiana
since 1988. He has played an instrumental role in drafting the past
several two-year state budgets.
Meeks will fill out the remainder of his term, but Republican
precinct committee members in District 13 will slate someone else
to be on the general election ballot in November.
