Orentlicher Announces Congressional Run Against Buschon
Long-time Indianapolis resident David Orentlicher plans to seek the Democratic nomination in the 8th congressional district race next year for the right to run against incumbent Rep. Larry Buschon (R-Evansville). Orentlicher, who teaches medicine and law at IU's medical and law schools in Indianapolis, says he plans to move to Terre Haute, which is located within the southwestern Indiana congressional district. Orentlicher lost a caucus election and then a primary election in 2008 to U.S. Rep. Andre Carson in Indiana's 7th District. He gave up his seat in the Indiana House, which is now held by State Rep. Ed DeLaney. Speaking of DeLaney, what's up DeLaney's son, Tim, taking a pass on running for Scott Schneider's Senate seat next year?
