GOP Surgeon Aims To Unseat Indiana Rep. Ellsworth

Indiana Republican Larry Bucshon, a heart surgeon, has made official his his 2010 bid to challenge two-term Democratic Rep. Brad Ellsworth.

Bucshon criticized the fiscal policies pursued by the Obama administration and the Democratic-run Congress, though he also said that Republicans need to acknowledge “we were partially to blame for the increased government spending over the past decade.”
