Rep. Jackie Walorski’s Democratic challenger in Indiana’s 2nd District announced Wednesday an ad buy worth more than $100,000.

Democratic businessman Mel Hall’s latest ad highlights his time as a minister in inner city Detroit.

Hall’s ad cites the Bible verse Luke 12:48, which says “To whom much is given, from him much is expected,” as motivation.

The campaign said Hall’s second ad of the general election would play in South Bend on broadcast and on cable in Chicago.

Last month, the New Democrats’ political arm endorsed Hall and he has poured some of his own money into the race.

Both Walorski and President Donald Trump won the district by more than 23 points in 2016.

Inside Elections with Nathan L. Gonzales changed the rating of the race from Solid Republican to Likely Republican in May.
