Rokita wins in 4th District

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Indiana Secretary of State Todd Rokita has kept the state's 4th District in the Republican column by winning the election to replace retiring Rep. Steve Buyer.

Rokita easily won in the heavily Republican district despite a low-key campaign since winning the GOP primary in May. Rokita twice won statewide races for secretary of state but was prevented from seeking re-election this year because of term limits.

Buyer announced in January that he would retire after 18 years in Congress because his wife has been diagnosed with an incurable autoimmune disease.

Rokita defeated Democrat David Sanders, a Purdue University biology professor who twice lost to Buyer.
