INDIANAPOLIS – Congresswoman Jackie Walorski (IN-02) filed for re-election to continue representing Indiana’s 2nd District in Congress.
“As a lifelong Hoosier, I’m grateful to be able to fight for the hardworking people of Indiana’s 2nd District,” Walorski said. “Politicians in Washington are trying to divide the country with a radical agenda and a partisan impeachment charade, but I’m staying focused on what really matters.”
“That’s why I’m committed to working with President Trump to build on our nation’s economic momentum, keep our country safe, fight for our veterans, and make sure working families have a chance to achieve the American Dream,” said Walorski
Walorski’s campaign raised more than $360,000 during the fourth quarter of 2019 – the most the campaign has ever raised in the final quarter of a non-election year – bringing total cash on hand to more than $850,000, said a news release from Walorski’s office.
Walorski said she’s worked to achieve commonsense solutions, including passing laws to cut taxes on health care, combat the opioid epidemic, protect veterans, and strengthen families.
Some more facts:
- Walorski serves on the House Ways and Means Committee and is the top Republican on the Subcommittee on Worker and Family Support. The president recently signed into law her bipartisan legislation to help states transform the foster care system and put families first.
- She has fought on behalf of northern Indiana to ensure our farmers, businesses, and workers are treated fairly when it comes to trade. She played a key role in passing the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), President Trump’s deal to modernize North American trade, and she has led the charge to defend American manufacturers and farmers from tariffs and retaliation.
- Walorski led the fight to permanently repeal the job-killing medical device tax and the costly health insurance tax. The president recently signed into law her legislation to repeal these Obamacare taxes that were driving up the cost of health care.
- She has fought to keep our nation’s promise to our brave veterans. In 2016, she authored a law to protect veterans from the overprescribing of opioids. And in 2013, Walorski authored a bipartisan law that protects survivors of military sexual assault.
