Rudy Yakym easily won the caucus on Saturday to replace the late Jackie Walorski on the ballot this fall for the Second Congressional District. In a heavily Republican district, that likely makes him the next Congressman.

From Curtis Hill, to Curtis Nisly, to Christy Stutzman, some big political names fell way short. What is next for these current and former public office holders? Can they return to elected positions in the future? Was Saturday their last opportunity?

Rob Kendall and Abdul-Hakim Shabazz debate their futures on this week’s Statehouse Happenings. Plus, is State Senator Kyle Walker in trouble? And can Deigo Morales overcome questions and skepticism from the establishment wing of the Indiana Republican Party to become the next Secretary of State?
