WSBT: Indiana Republican candidates make their way around Indiana to encourage voting

Indiana Republican candidates are making their way around the state getting people out to vote.

Today (Sunday), they made a stop Mishawaka.

We talked with 2nd district Congresswoman Jackie Walorski and her challenger Mel Hall today.

They are locked in a race that has seen over $5 million spent trying to win your vote.

Republicans from across the state rallied at Congresswoman Jackie Walorski’s Mishawaka headquarters in support of her bid to win a 4th term.

“When the bus rolled in and the governor and Mike Braun and all the folks came into this place, it was like an exhilarating Notre Dame running through the tunnel,” said Walorski. “They ran through a tunnel of people.”

Governor Eric Holcomb and other Republican leaders came to show their support.

“Common sense Hoosiers understand that this seat is not for sale, this is not what this is about,” said Walorski. “This is about fighting for Hoosiers. This is about doing the right thing for the sake of right and, that’s what I have been about. That’s what these people have been about.”

While Jackie Walorski was busy thanking her supporters and campaign team, right around the corner, Mel Hall was knocking on doors.

“We are out talking to folks, listening to their concerns and responding,” said Hall. “I’ve always believed that you go door to door and talk to people directly.”

Both candidates spent millions, but for the first time in all of her campaigns for congress, Walorski has less money available this time around than her competitor.

“I know what our message is, and it has definitely been resonating with voters and with constituents,” said Walorski.

“I have made it clear all along that I will fight for them,” said Hall. “They are excited to have someone running for office who walks in the rain, knocking on doors, and looking them in the eye asking for their support.
