Jackie Walorski speaks at GOP convention

Jackie Walorski, a candidate for U.S. Rep. in Indiana’s District 2, spoke at the Republican National Convention Tuesday in Tampa. A transcript of her remarks follows:

Good afternoon. I’m proud to represent Indiana, which we affectionately refer to as the Hoosier State.

Hoosiers cherish values like common sense, hard work and problem solving. And there’s a lot Washington can learn from the Hoosier State. When Indiana faced a massive budget shortfall, we didn’t play partisan games. We came together, rolled up our sleeves and turned a billion dollar deficit into a surplus.

In the face of record unemployment, we understood that more government spending won’t create jobs. That’s why we passed common sense reforms that made it easier to do business and create jobs in our great state. As a result, Indiana was rated as the best Midwest state to do business in and we are among the nation’s leaders in job growth.

 In the Hoosier State, we proved a very simple lesson: Working together is the best way to solve our problems. And Washington can do the same.

By cutting spending and reducing the red tape we can unleash our small businesses to create jobs. And with Hoosier common sense, we can balance the budget and get our nation’s economy working again.

American workers and American entrepreneurs are the best in the world. I’m ready to carry their torch to Washington and prove there will never be a mountain too high for us to climb; the American spirit will always persevere.

Fellow Hoosiers, it’s your time to take back the country.
