Current House Scoreboard
Bottom Line

President Trump won Indiana’s Second District by 23 points. The Democrats have a credible candidate in Mel Hall and he’s raised a decent amount of money. However, if we’re still talking about this race as competitive in the fall, it means Republicans are going to have a very long night.

Representative Jackie Walorski is one of 45 Republican incumbents who raised less money than their challengers during the fourth quarter of 2017.
