There was a familiar face above the podium Tuesday at the Republican National Convention.

Hoosier congressional candidate Jackie Walorski spoke to delegates in Tampa Tuesday afternoon.

The former state rep and Jimtown resident took the stage just after 3:00, and her 2 minute address was broadcast live on CSPAN.

Walorski touted Indiana's strong values, like hard work and problem solving, and said there's a lot that Washington can learn from the Hoosier state.

"When Indiana faced a massive budget shortfall, we didn't play partisan games,” she said from the podium. “We came together, we rolled up our sleeves and we turned a billion dollar deficit into a surplus.”

Walorski is vying for Indiana's second district congressional seat, which is being vacated by Joe Donnelly as he makes a run at the U.S. Senate.

She will square off against Democrat Brendan Mullen and Libertarian Joe Ruiz in November's general election.
