The 4th District includes every county in the News 18 viewing area.

Even though he is not on the ballot today, current 4th District Congressman Todd Rokita is very involved in the election. When Rokita ran in the Senate in the primary against eventual winner Mike Braun, he vacated his 4th District Congressional Seat. Rokita will leave Congress in January after four terms. He said he and his wife are currently looking into other opportunities for his future.

Baird is a Purdue University grad and Vietnam veteran.
