For a second time in 17 years, students from Tippecanoe County have traveled to the statehouse to advocate for a bill designating Say's Firefly as the state insect.

And, for a second time in as many years, the General Assembly elected to not take action on the bill.

The firefly activists, second- and third-graders at West Lafayette's Cumberland Elementary School, plan to shine a light on the topic until state lawmakers see things their way.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is challenging Donald Trump's foreign-policy credentials as the Indiana primary draws closer.

Both Cruz and Trump have touted a bombs-away approach to ISIS, with Cruz saying he'd like to find out "whether sand glows in the dark" and Trump saying he'd "bomb the ---- out of them."

Cruz says Trump’s answer to a foreign policy question only makes matters worse.

Presidential candidates have blanketed Indiana over the last couple of weeks, seeking to secure as many delegates as possible in the hunt for their parties’ nomination.

Here's how Republican and Democratic delegates are doled out based on Tuesday’s results:

Indiana has 57 Republican delegates up for grabs.  Thirty of those delegates will vote for the statewide winner on the first ballot at the Republican National Convention.

As many as a thousand union members and supporters of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders rallied outside the Indiana Statehouse Friday in support of laid-off Carrier factory workers.

Sanders' last-minute appearance at the protest came days before Tuesday's primary election, where the Carrier story has taken center stage.

The diverse crowd on the statehouse lawn wielded signs reading "Keep it made in America" and "Save our jobs, stop corporate greed," and chanted union slogans like "stand up, fight back."

Indiana will receive $9 million as a result of a settlement reached with drug producer Wyeth, which allegedly cheated multiple states’ Medicaid out of the money when it didn’t offer them federally-mandated rebates on specific drugs.

Indiana, along with 34 other states and the federal government, are sharing a nearly $800 million settlement with the company. Bryan Corbin of the Indiana Attorney General’s Office says drug companies such as Wyeth are required to give Medicaid programs certain rebates in order to save programs tax dollars.
