How Many Will Join The Ninth District Congressional Race?
First-term State Sen. Erin Houchin has officially announced her candidacy for Indiana's Ninth District following U.S. Rep. Todd Young's announcement he will seek the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by retiring Sen. Dan Coats next year. Attorney General Greg Zoeller is a sure bet to enter the race as well. He filed paperwork to form an exploratory committee. Two other state senators, Brent Waltz and Rod Bray, have also been mentioned as potential candidates. The Republican primary race could become quite crowded. No Democratic candidates have emerged yet.
