Victoria Spartz announces reelection campaign in 5th District


Republican Congresswoman Victoria Spartz announced she is running for reelection in 2022 in Indiana’s 5th Congressional District, roughly four months into her first term and a year and a half before the general election.

Depending on how Republican legislative leaders redraw the Congressional maps this fall when they redistrict, her race could be one of the most competitive in the state once again. 

“I had to think long and hard, but after much deliberation I have decided to run for another term representing Indiana’s 5th District,” Spartz said in a statement Monday. “There is a lot at stake for our country and I believe I can be valuable to my constituents and fight for good policy solutions badly needed for our nation.”

She called Congress “badly broken” but said it was an honor to represent the 5th District.
