Bucshon Survives Primary in Indiana's 8th District

May 8, 2012

Rep. Larry Bucshon, R-Ind., has survived a tea party primary challenge in Indiana's 8th Congressional District, dispatching activist Kristi Risk Tuesday night.

The Associated Press called the race for Bucshon around 9:45 p.m. With 79 percent of precincts reporting, Bucshon led Risk 58 percent to 42 percent.

Risk only lost to Bucshon by about 2,000 votes in a crowded, open 2010 primary, and her blistering attacks on Bucshon's voting record set her up with a good opportunity running one-on-one against the freshman incumbent. Bucshon only won 33 percent of the primary vote in 2010.

But Bucshon played able defense, using his better fundraising to boost himself on TV and override Risk's attempts to surge on the coattails of insurgent GOP Senate primary victor Richard Mourdock, who hails from the 8th District.
