Brooks Defeats McIntosh in Indiana 5th District GOP Primary

May 8, 2012

Former U.S. Attorney Susan Brooks has won the Republican nomination in Indiana's 5th Congressional District, narrowly defeating former Rep. David McIntosh and six other challengers Tuesday night.

The Associated Press called the primary for Brooks just after 10 p.m. With 99 percent of precincts reporting, Brooks led McIntosh 30 percent to 29 percent.

McIntosh brought outside support from the Club for Growth and the Campaign for Primary Accountability to the district, but Brooks consistently attacked McIntosh over his residence -- he lived in the D.C. area after his first stint in Congress, working as a lobbyist, but he kept voting in Indiana via property he owned and rented during that time.

The 5th District, currently held by retiring GOP Rep. Dan Burton, is heavily Republican, and Brooks is likely to become just the sixth woman -- and the first since 2007 -- to represent Indiana in Congress.
