LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Republican U.S. Rep. Todd Rokita will be matched up against a high school teacher in the November election.
Rokita defeated Kevin Grant in the 4th District GOP primary, advancing to the fall campaign in which he'll be heavily favored.
The former Indiana secretary of state will be facing Democrat John Dale. The Western Boone High School teacher defeated four other candidates for the Democratic nomination.
Rokita received at least 62 percent of the vote the past two elections. No Democrat has received more than 40 percent of the vote in the district since Republican Steve Buyer defeated three-term Democratic Rep. Jim Jontz in 1992.
Rokita supported the 2013 federal government shutdown and said not raising the debt ceiling could become a good tool for curbing federal spending.
