Former Miss Indiana Shelli Yoder says she is taking a second shot at running for Congress in Indiana’s 9th Congressional District.
Yoder announced today she was running for the spot. She ran against incumbent Todd Young in 2012, losing 55-44 percent.
Yoder says she wants to “take her brand of collaborative, commonsense leadership to Washington to make a difference for Hoosier families.”
She says she is a different type of Democrat who would put common sense over partisan ideology.
Young is running for the U.S. Senate. Yoder is the only announced Democrat in the race. Republicans face a crowded field which includes Attorney General Greg Zoeller and State Senators Brent Waltz and Erin Houchin.
