Republican Trey Hollingsworth is projected to defeat Democrat Shelli Yoder to be the next representative for Indiana’s 9th Congressional District.

He won, 54-40.

The race was competitive and, at times, ugly as Hollingsworth’s opponents labeled him “Tennessee Trey,” saying he lived in Tennessee and only moved to Indiana to win a seat in Congress.

Hollingsworth has been registered to vote in Indiana since Sept. 2015.

Considered one of the closest House races in Indiana, the 9th District race had seen an unusually high amount of campaign money spent by outside groups.

In television ads that have blanketed the airwaves for the election season, Hollingsworth labeled himself a political outsider and a conservative.

The 9th District covers much of central Indiana, including parts of Greenwood and Bloomington to the Ohio River.

The current representative, Todd Young, didn’t seek re-election. He instead chose to run for U.S. Senate against former Senator Evan Bayh
