Indiana state Rep. Jackie Walorski has won the GOP primary to face Rep. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) in November.
Walorski, a top GOP recruit who the party hopes will make the district competitive again, easily won her primary. She led her closest competitor 57-31 with 46 percent of precincts reporting. The race has been called.
Donnelly won a largely uncontested race with 67 percent of the vote in 2008, but Republicans have redoubled their efforts to go after him this cycle. To that end, Walorski has been named to the NRCC's Young Guns program, where she has reached the second of three stages -- contender.
