Goshen Attorney to Run for Second District Congressional Seat in 2012

Andrew Straw

A Goshen attorney is expected to run for the Second District Congressional seat in Indiana. Andrew Straw, 42, is a Northridge High School graduate and he holds a bachelor’s, masters, and law degree from Indiana University. If he gets the nomination, he would be running as a Democrat. Republican Jackie Walorski has also announced that she will be running for the seat that is expected to be abandoned by current Representative, Joe Donnelly.

Donnelly is expected to abandon the seat after three terms to run for the U.S. Senate against either Senator Richard Lugar or State Treasurer Richard Mourdock. Mourdock is trying to unseat Lugar in the 2012 Republican Primary.
