|Rep. Jackie Walorski|
There certainly isn't much out there to indicate there will be major changes in Indiana's delegation come January 2015. That comes with one exception.
In Indiana's District 2, Congresswoman Jackie Walorski, the Republican incumbent, is under serious attack from Notre Dame official, Joe Bock, her Democratic challenger. Bock is raising money, and it's clear that both Republicans and Democrats know how important the seat is.
It's also gotten the attention of comedian, Bill Maher. During his "Flip a District" segment on Real Time, Maher has mentioned Walorski's Northern Indiana district calling her a "gerrymandering queen" and pointing out that she only won after the district was redrawn to be more favorable to Republicans. Walorski made it to the final 16 of Maher's list.
Fact is that Walorski was expected to win more handily last time than she did over Brendan Mullen. Mullen, however, kept it close. Walorski ended up nipping Mullen despite a district that rates +6 Republican.
Bock, who is very conservative, can win this, but it's still a bit of an uphill climb for a Democrat even with Walorski's seeming unpopularity. I would not be surprised if this race ends up tight in November. Howey Politics Indiana's Jack Colwell reports that Walorski has been running ads all summer long.
