Jacqueline R. Walorski was an American politician who served as the U.S. Representative for Indiana's 2nd congressional district from 2013 until her death in August 2021. She was a member of the Republican Party and was known for her conservative views on issues such as abortion, gun rights, and immigration.
Walorski began her political career in the Indiana House of Representatives, where she served from 2005 to 2010. In 2010, she ran for the U.S. House of Representatives but was defeated by incumbent Democrat Joe Donnelly. She ran again in 2012 and won, defeating Democrat Brendan Mullen.
During her time in Congress, Walorski was a vocal supporter of President Donald Trump and his policies. She voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, and supported Trump's efforts to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. She also served on the House Ways and Means Committee, which oversees tax policy.
Walorski's death in August 2021 came as a shock to many in the political world. She had been diagnosed with cancer earlier in the year but had continued to work in Congress until shortly before her death. Her passing was mourned by colleagues on both sides of the aisle, who praised her dedication to public service and her commitment to her constituents in Indiana's 2nd district.
