Candidates for the House of Representatives in Indiana hope for the best

Here in Indiana, it is expected to be a close race for the House Representative seat, in District 21.

That is where incumbent Jackie Walorski is facing off with democrat Bob Kovach.

From sunrise to sunset tonight, both candidates Walorski and Kovach wasted no time in working to get those final votes of support.

We caught up with both candidates Tuesday outside polling spots in their districts.

Democrat Bob Kovach was in his home district today, at Mishawaka's Hums Elementary School. “I started out this morning right at 6 o'clock, and made a tour of the District, the South Precints, all the way to Walkterton to Nappanee, to back here,” he stated.

He is hoping the undecided voters will sway his way with their votes.

Meantime, Republican Jackie Walorski was shaking hands in Elkhart. She was outside a polling place at the Zion Missionary Church. “ I'm probably like everybody else, counting the hours for this to be over. We've been out until dark every night, and phone banking and phone calling for almost three months now. I've talked to thousands of people in this district,” she said.

Outside the Middlebury Town Hall, we also caught up with Republican John Ulmer. “I’m just thanking people for voting and asking them if they'll support me or vote for me. It's just, I enjoying seeing people, talking to people, letting them know they can call anytime."

He wants to keep his seat in District 49.

Meantime, John Ulmer's challenger, Democrat Mike Puro declined to speak with the media this afternoon.

A spokesperson says Puro would prefer to wait until all the results are in later tonight.

No doubt, all candidates are looking forward to those final tallies.
