Second Democrat seeks congressional seat

A fourth person, and second Democrat, has filed to run for Congress in the northeast Indiana 3rd District.

Jim Redmond of rural Auburn filed his candidacy Friday with the Indiana secretary of state’s office.

Redmond, 64, works in manufacturing management. He was a Democratic candidate for seats on the DeKalb County Council in 2006 and 2008.

Redmond joins Justin Kuhnle of Kendallville as candidates who have filed to run in the May 6 Democratic primary election in the 3rd District, which includes all or parts of a dozen counties.

Incumbent Rep. Marlin Stutzman of Howe is being challenged in the Republican primary by James Mahoney III of Huntington. Stutzman seeks his third full two-year term in the heavily Republican district.
