Incumbent Republican Congressman Jim Baird defeated Democratic challenger Roger Day in the race for Indiana’s U.S. House 4th Congressional District Tuesday.

The Associated Press called the race with 43 percent of precincts reporting - Baird landed 66 percent of the vote, while Day took just 33 percent. Baird was first elected in 2018.

In a statement, Indiana Republican Party Chair Kyle Hupfer congratulated Baird on his win.

“Jim has been a strong voice for Hoosiers in the Fourth Congressional District, especially veterans, farmers, and our rural communities,” Hupfer wrote.

The 4th U.S. House district covers much of northwestern Indiana, including the cities of Lafayette and Kokomo.

Congressman Baird did not respond to a request for comment.
