Former Arc Exec Runs for U.S. Senate

A political newcomer who has spent his career advocating for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities announced Saturday he is running for the Democratic nomination to replace retiring Republican U.S. Sen. Dan Coats.
John Dickerson, the executive director of Indianapolis-based not-for-profit The Arc of Indiana from 1983 until stepping down last month to explore a run for office, said he thinks he'd be a good senator because he's worked at building coalitions.
"It's about how do we build a consensus," he said. "My history has been about finding that piece that we can agree on and begin to move forward."
