Indiana politics: There’s still no GOP candidate for this newly created Indiana House seat. Here’s why

Jaworowski was one of three candidates who ran in the Republican primary for the new House District 32 seat, which was formed after redistricting in 2021. House District 32 is located mainly in Hamilton County and dips into northern Marion County.

Election results were certified Monday in both counties, making Hamilton County Councilor Fred Glynn, who received the most votes, the winner of the Republican primary.

“We are confident that this lead will hold and my campaign will maintain victory," Glynn said in an email to IndyStar Monday.

Just 0.1% separated Glynn and Jaworowski in the primary election. Glynn won 44.3% of the vote while Jaworowski received 44.2%. Fishers resident Paul Nix got 11.5%.

“It’s just so close that I think a recount is a reasonable thing to ask for the numbers,” Jaworowski said. “I want to be sure because there are so many people who were so supportive of me, whether it was just prayers or dollars or door knocking or whatever. I just want to make sure. I don’t want to leave any stone unturned.”

Jaworowski said in a phone call with IndyStar that she does not want to "drag this out."

"I don't want to be unreasonable," she said. "I want to be thorough and I think that a recount is part of being thorough."

The recount will determine who is set to face Democrat Victoria Garcia Wilburn in the general election later this year.
