Jul 08 2014 Howey Politics Indiana

INDIANAPOLIS – Despite record low approval ratings for U.S. Congress and a general anti-incumbent mood pervading the entire American political spectrum, it has been evident for months that Indiana’s congressional delegation will be quite safe come November. Every incumbent is seeking reelection and none had to face a serious primary challenger. All incumbents have a sizable campaign war chest, not to mention lead over their respective opponents. At first glance, no seat is in play.

Last month’s HPI’s Horse Race assessed all nine district contests and rated all of the incumbents ‘safe,’ except one, the 2nd Congressional District. Seeking reelection for the first time, 2nd CD freshman U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski is still considered the favorite but will, unlike her delegation colleagues, face a contest this cycle. It’s been a very competitive district the past two election cycles which Walorski should know quite well. She was a three-term state representative from 2005-2010 for the suburbs between South Bend and Elkhart (HD21) before she ran
for the 2nd CD seat
in 2010. Then U.S.
Rep. Joe Donnelly
bested her by only 1
percent. The second
go around was very
close again, but a
victory. Walorski
beat Democrat Brendan Mullen by only 1 percent in 2012.
