Local Attorney Pat Hackett To Challenge Walorski for Congressional Seat

Local attorney and Notre Dame adjunct law professor Pat Hackett announced her candidacy for Indiana’s 2nd Congressional District against Rep. Jackie Walorski. Hackett brings decades of experience in the district as an attorney, teacher and small business owner and is running to reclaim the people’s voice in Congress.

“I will always fight for dignity and justice for all, and I believe we deserve a representative who listens and represents our interests. Jackie Walorski is a career politician who refuses to hold town halls, caters to the special interests who give millions of dollars to her campaigns, and is out of touch with the people in this district. I will be an advocate for healthcare for all, the workers who live paycheck-to-paycheck, the seniors who depend on Social Security and Medicare, and the farmers who are struggling with the growing catastrophe of climate change and challenge of reckless tariffs. We deserve an advocate and leader who will represent the people of this district and not engage in pay-to-play politics in Congress.”  

Pat Hackett graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a B.A. in Government and Theology, an M.A. in Theology and a J.D. from the law school where she now serves as an adjunct professor. Since 2006, Pat has owned and operated her own firm Hackett & Associates in South Bend. Pat is an active civic leader, having served on several boards in St. Joseph County including the YWCA, the Community Foundation, and as past President of the Alzheimer’s Services of Northern Indiana. Her deep commitment to justice and expertise in ethics are motivating factors in her decision to run for office.

Pat makes her home with her spouse, Rita, in South Bend. The campaign will have a formal kickoff event open to the public later this summer.
