WASHINGTON (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - WASHINGTON (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - The new class of lawmakers in Washington includes Indiana 3rd District Congressman Marlin Stutzman starting his 2-year term in office.

He and 9 other new Republicans were interviewed by ABC News' Diane Sawyer Wednesday night.

They talked about how they plan to follow through on the promises that got them elected.

Stutzman said he hopes gridlock won't be a problem.

Congressman Stutzman says, “It is more important for us to have civil dialogue. And you know what? I'm conservative, but I'm not mad about it. I-- I can do it with a smile on my face. And we can have civil discourse. And we can realize that there are some points, we are gonna just disagree upon. And that's-- that's okay.”
