Young Attorney Enters Race Against Souder

Posted June 13, 2007 at 1:08pm

Indianapolis attorney Michael Montagano (D) has decided to take on Rep. Mark Souder (R) in the Hoosier State’s 3rd district.

Montagano, who graduated from Indiana University’s law school last year, is not daunted by the district’s overwhelming preference for Republicans — President Bush won 68 percent of the vote there in 2004.

Souder, who has held the seat since 1995, had won re-election with 60 percent of the vote or more from 1998 until last year, when he took just 54 percent as three of his Hoosier State GOP colleagues went down in defeat.
