Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch shared this statement upon hearing the news U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski, (R-Ind.), was killed in an automobile accident earlier today:

“I was shocked and heartbroken when I received the news today about the tragic death of Congresswoman Jackie Walorski. Jackie and I served together in the Indiana House of Representatives, and she was a fighter for her constituents and conservative Hoosier values. My heart goes out to her husband, Dean, and the rest of her family and friends. She will be deeply missed.”
