DECISION 2012: Walorski wins District 2 seat

ELKHART — Cheers rose up from the crowd at the RV/MH Hall of Fame as Republican candidate Jackie Walorski took to the stage for a victory speech Tuesday night.

Numbers bounced back and forth for each candidate for Indiana’s U.S. House District 2 race, with Walorski and her Democratic opponent Brendan Mullen each taking the lead at different points in the night.

But the numbers went Walorski's way as she claimed victory at 11:41 p.m.

In Elkhart County, Walorski gathered 58 percent of the vote, just shy of 38,000 votes. For comparison, Mullen received 40 percent, and Libertarian candidate Joe Ruiz received 3 percent.

Walorski was all smiles as she gave her acceptance speech.

Walorski took time to thank her family, campaign staff, dedicated volunteers and friends gathered at the RV/MH Hall of Fame, as well as all those in the district who voted for her.

“I’m so proud to represent you and to be a Hoosier tonight,” Walorski said to the crowd.

Walorski won with 49 percent of the vote, while her Democratic opponent Brendan Mullen gathered 48 percent of the vote. Libertarian Joe Ruiz got 3 percent of the vote.

Walorski said the campaign took everyone a “long time.”

“This grassroots campaign has been as grassroots as it comes,” Walorski said, citing the phone calls, door-to-door visits and other efforts of her campaign as large factors in her win.

“We finished the line together tonight,” she continued.

Mullen conceded the race to Walorski not long before she took the stage to speak.

“I am extremely proud of the grassroots campaign that we ran and the work that supporters did on my behalf,” Mullen said in a statement. “None of this would have been possible without the unwavering support from my wife, Suzanne and our family as well as the friends and neighbors who worked tirelessly to make this campaign happen.”
