U.S. REP. DISTRICT 2: Next up for Bock is GOP's Walorski

SOUTH BEND — Joe Bock will be the Democrat who takes on Republican Jackie Walorski in the U.S. House District 2 race in November and incumbent GOP representative in the 3rd District, Marlin Stutzman of Howe, easily won his primary.

Bock, a University of Notre Dame faculty member, was picked by Democrats as their candidate in Tuesday’s election.

Four candidates sought the Democratic Party’s nomination: Bob Kern of Indianapolis, Doug Carpenter, South Bend, Bock of South Bend and Dan Morrison of Elkhart.

In a district that switches parties often, the November election could be a close one. Walorski won her first term in 2012 by defeating Democrat Brendan Mullen by 3,920 votes. Walorksi lost the 2010 election in the 2nd District to Democrat Joe Donnelly by 2,538 votes.

Bock was director of global health training at Notre Dame’s Eck Institute for Global Health until he announced his candidacy but remains on the school’s faculty. Morrison finished second in the 2012 primary. Kern has run unsuccessfully for a congressional seat in Indianapolis eight times.

Bock focused on the November race during the primary and refused to debate the other Democratic candidates.

3rd District

Stutzman defeated two little-funded Republicans to win the GOP nomination for northeastern Indiana’s 3rd District seat.

Neither Mark Barringer nor James Mahoney had filed campaign reports with the Federal Election Commission. Stutzman reported raising nearly $800,000 and having more than $430,000 on hand.

Stutzman received 44,947 votes, which was 82 percent of the total. Baringer had 5,498 votes and Mahoney 4,662.

Stutzman is seeking a third term in the House. He is the senior Republican in Indiana’s delegation because he took office in November 2010 after Mark Souder resigned. The seat has been held by a Republican since 1976 except from 1989-95, when it was held by Democratic Rep. Jill Long.
