Four more people have declared their candidacy for late Congresswoman Jackie Walorski's District 2 seat

MISHAWAKA, Ind. -- Four more people have declared their candidacy for Rep. Jackie Walorski's seat ahead of the special caucus on Saturday.

Terry Harper III from Granger, Scott Huffman of Plymouth, Michael Nidiffer from Granger, and Scott Wise of Whitley County all have filed.

The winner of the special election will finish Walorski's term, while the winner of the general election will start a new two-year term this January.

The Republican party will decide who's on the ballot this November, but there could be a different person for each election.

Some voters may only see one of these races on their ballot due to the current term having different boundaries.

"They will cast their vote for either both the special to fill out the term, and the general," said Chad Kinsella, an Associate Professor of Political Science at Ball State University. "And then there will be some people who will vote for the general only, and some people who only vote for the special election and not the general."

Voters who want to weigh in on who ends up on the ballot, can reach out to their local GOP Office for further information.

The special caucus is at Grissom Middle School on August 20, at 11 a.m.
