INDIANAPOLIS (WLFI) — Incumbent State Representative Sheila Klinker will face a familiar opponent in her re-election bid. Republican Chuck Hockema filed for the State House District 27 race shortly before the Friday filing deadline.

Klinker announced her intention to seek a 17th term in office on Wednesday. Hockema won his party’s primary in 2012, going on to face Klinker in the November 2012 General Election. Klinker won that race with more than 54 percent of the vote. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
