The Indiana State Police Alliance has endorsed Jennifer-Ruth Green in the race for District 1 U.S. Representative. Green's campaign announced the endorsement Tuesday. In a statement, Indiana State Police Alliance Executive Director Cory Martin called Green "a leader who will provide a fresh perspective in Washington."

Green said she's proud to have the endorsement and promised to "stand with the law enforcement officers who put their lives on the line." The Republican said she looks forward to working with the alliance "to provide funding and resources for better law enforcement for the people of Indiana.”

Green's opponent, Representative Frank Mrvan, has sought over a million dollars in federal funding for local police agencies.
