Walorski wins re-election to Indiana’s 2nd Congressional District

Rep. Jackie Walorski has won re-election to northern Indiana’s 2nd District, keeping the seat in Republican hands.

Walorski faced Methodist minister-turned-health care company executive Mel Hall.

The South Bend-area district was a Democratic-leaning district until the 2010 redistricting left it more favorable for Republicans.

Walorski easily won her last two re-election campaigns.

Hall campaigned on his experience in business and on health care issues, and was considered among the crop of stronger candidates Democrats recruited this year.
