INDIANAPOLIS - Leaders of Indiana's Democratic and Republican parties looked for ways to hold together the various wings of their parties as they met for their annual conventions over the past two weekends.
The Republican convention in Fort Wayne this past weekend featured divisive fights over the treasurer's nomination and gay marriage. But Republican Party Chairman Tim Berry looked for ways to rally all of the roughly 1,500 delegates.
Berry talked up some easy political topics, including support for veterans and opposition to tax hikes.
One of the easiest ways for any party to rally the troops is to focus the attention on the opponent.
Former Democratic gubernatorial candidate John Gregg kept his sights trained on Republican Gov. Mike Pence's troubles at the Statehouse when he spoke to Democrats a little more than a week ago.
