Rep. Spartz to Newsmax: ‘I Cannot … Abandon Our Republic’

Rep. Victoria Spartz, R-Ind., told Newsmax on Monday that she reversed her decision not to run for reelection because she “cannot be someone who’s going to abandon our republic.”

Spartz announced last year she did not intend to seek reelection to represent Indiana’s 5th Congressional District, only to change her mind and file to reenter the race just five days before last week’s deadline. She now faces almost a dozen contenders for the Republican nomination in the May GOP primary.

The congresswoman said last week when announcing her reelection campaign, “I do not take these decisions lightly but a lot of my constituents were upset I was not running, as well as a lot of my colleagues, so in these challenging times I needed to give voters a choice of someone who will actually fight for them and conservative policies — not personal agenda.”
