IDA dentist faces primary contender for House seat


Dr. Denny Zent, an IDA member running to be the Indiana House District 51 Republican candidate, has some company in his bid.

Dr. Zent will face Mr. Aaron Claudy, from Salem Center, Ind. Mr. Claudy is a parts manager for a General Motors dealership in Kendallville who filed last-minute for the race.

The Zent campaign does not think Mr. Claudy’s candidacy will pose any threat to Zent’s long-standing organization and wide range of support across Indiana as well as the country.

Due in part to contributions from IDPAC and the broader dental community, Dr. Zent hit the airwaves in northeastern Indiana in mid-March, roughly seven weeks prior to the May 8 primary.

“Denny is focusing on his district and making all the right moves to ensure a primary victory,” stated Ed Popcheff, IDA Director of Governmental Affairs.

Dr. Zent’s only potential Democratic opposition is Lon Keyes, who is running unopposed in the primary.
