Republican Diego Morales is looking to replace Rep. Todd Rokita, who is now running for U.S. Senate.

Morales is a U.S. Army veteran. He earned his master's degree from Purdue in 2012. After graduating, he was an advisor to former Gov. Mike Pence. The 38-year-old describes himself as a Christian conservative.

Morales says he wants to work hard for Hoosiers.

"I know I have the energy to go to Washington, D.C., and to fight for Tippecanoe County and the 4th District every single day," Morales said. "My number one job is to make sure that the 4th Congressional District will be represented well and we'll get all of the resources to prosper this district."

Morales is one of five candidates in the 4th District's Republican primary. The primary election is on May 8.
