"Jackie Walorski has been a true champion for us,” says Wilken, who’s from Westfield in the Indianapolis area, according to a 2013 Indianapolis Star profile. “The bipartisan law that Jackie wrote is crucial to combating sexual assault in our armed forces.”
Walorski’s first ad, released in early July, zeroes in on the theme of bipartisanship. Her Democratic critics have blasted the one-term incumbent as a GOP partisan, and her Democratic opponent, Joe Bock, issued a statement decrying that first ad’s bipartisan claims.
Walorski’s provisions in the defense spending bill give those making reports of sexual assault protection as whistleblowers and requires investigations into charges of retaliatory action against victims.
