Indiana 2012: Luke Messer & David McIntosh File

Luke Messer (R)

The 2012 Congressional races kicked off only hours after the filing period began.  Republican Luke Messer waited mere hours to file his papers to run in Indiana’s 6th District – which is being vacated as 6-time incumbent Mike Pence is vying for Governor.

Messer is no stranger to Indiana politics.  After serving as a state representative, Messer challenged career politician Dan Burton in the GOP Primaries in 2010.  Due to an overcrowded field of 7 candidates, Messer fell just 2.05% short of ousting Burton.  With the redistricting following the 2010 Census, Messer now falls into the 6th District.  2012 is looking to be, yet another, crowded field of candidates.

Former congressman David MCIntosh (R)


Speaking of Congressman Dan Burton (IN-5), a face from Indiana’s congressional past has filed to run in the GOP Primary election.  Former congressman, David McIntosh – who has since worked as an adviser to Conservative Lobby groups, in a move reminiscent of Senator Dan Coates’ 2010 campaign, is planning a return to the public side of politics.

McIntosh was elected in the 1994 “Republican Revolution”, and served 3 terms before seeking the Governor’s office in 2000, losing to Democrat Frank O’Bannon.
