U.S. Congressman Larry Bucshon has secured his spot as the representative of Indiana's 8th Congressional District.

The Associated Press called Bucshon's win with the candidate currently holding 71% of votes.

Bucshon, the Republican candidate on the ticket, was up against Democratic candidate Thomasina Marsili, who advanced from the Democratic primary on June 2, 2020, and Libertarian candidate James Rodenberger. Marsili has currently secured 26% of votes.

Bucshon released the following statement after being elected to his sixth term to represent Indiana's 8th District in the U.S. House of Representatives:

"This election is one of the most consequential in the history of America and I am honored and grateful that Hoosiers in the Eighth District have given me the privilege to continue representing them in the U.S. House of Representatives. Without my supporters and my team this would not be possible and I can’t thank them enough for ensuring our shared conservative Hoosier values of faith, family, and freedom will continue to be represented in Congress."

We're going to be looking out for another brutally hot afternoon throughout the Tri-State; afternoon highs should peak in the mid to high 90s with heat indices approaching and even surpassing 105°. As for the remainder of the evening, one can expect much of the same - temperatures will stick around the upper 80s through at least dinnertime before dipping to 80° or so by 10PM. By that time there is a good potential of some rainfall and storms picking up across the Tri-State. There is a chance we could see some severe weather develop with these storms. We'll start to see relief return Friday afternoon into Saturday.
