U.S. Rep. Brooks wins Republican primary in 5th

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Freshman U.S. Rep. Susan Brooks has held off a challenge by Carmel insurance broker David Stockdale to win the Republican primary in Indiana's 5th Congressional District.

Brooks is a former U.S. attorney and former deputy mayor of Indianapolis. She is seeking to retain the seat Republican Dan Burton held for 30 years before retiring two years ago.

Brooks will face Democrat Shawn Denney in the November election. He's a history teacher at Indiana Connections Academy who won a three-way Democratic primary.

Stockdale had the support of some tea party groups and said he was running because he believes too many members of Congress had been selected by party leaders. He also said he wanted to put the Constitution first instead of the party.

David "Mike" Campbell also ran in the primary.
