Walorski and Bock to face off for 2nd District

Congresswomen Jackie Walorski will face humanitarian aid worker Joe Bock in November to defend her congressional seat.

Walorski was in Jimtown Tuesday morning to cast her vote at the Jimtown High School Voting Center.  She said the new technology involving a touch screen was great.  Walorski was also impressed that the new electronic system was not only convenient but also saved money.

Walorski didn't have to worry about any opposition today because she ran unopposed.  Although she says just because she doesn't haven't an opponent, it doesn't mean she's stress free. 
"There's nothing less stressful or relaxing, I don't think, about campaign time.  This is what we do as Americans.  This is a great day.  It's a great time for folks to come out and let their opinion be known on who they want in leadership," says Walorski.  After casting her vote Tuesday morning Walorski headed back to Washington D.C.

With three other contenders for the Democratic nomination, Bock spent the day getting out the vote around the 2nd District.  Bock said this morning that his campaign wasn't about him, but was about "us demanding a functional government."

After his victory Bock said he was feeling great and people had affirmed his message saying, "our message that we need pragmatic problem solving in the U.S. Congress.  We've had enough of the partisan bickering, enough of the government shutdowns that Congresswoman Walorski was involved with, we need to make our government work again."

There is also a third candidate in this race.  Jeff Petermann is the Libertarian Party candidate running for Indiana's 2nd Congressional District.   He is currently the chair of the Elkhart County Libertarian Party.

Election Day this year is November 4.
