A potential challenger to U.S. Rep. Todd Rokita (R-Lafayette) held a vigil in Lafayette Tuesday night to decry the House's passage of the American Healthcare Act.

Democratic 4th District candidate Sherry Shipley gathered with Greater Lafayette residents to hear concerns about the proposed replacement for Obamacare.

Many attendees spoke out about what they feel was a lack of representation from incumbent Rokita as the bill was crafted.

Shipley says both diversity and medical professionals are missing from the conversation in Washington.
