Mike Sodrel (R)  announced in an email early Monday morning of his plans to run against incumbent, Blue Dog, Baron Hill (D)  for Indiana’s 9th congressional district seat. 64 year old Sodrel served one term in the U.S House of Representatives for Indiana’s 9th district from 2005-2007. If Sodrel wins the GOP nomination as expected this will be his 5th race against Hill.  

Sodrel who lives in New Albany, IN had few good words in his email announcement for his candidacy regarding the Obama administration. In his email to supporters Sodrel wrote "The Obama administration and Pelosi's Congress are doing all the wrong things. They have spent the last year on health care legislation. We need to get the economy back on track. We need to create real jobs, not another huge government bureaucracy. And you don't pull a country out of an economic slump by hurting the people who do the hiring. Additional taxes, government takeovers and programs like 'cap and trade' would do just that.”

Currently only two other Republicans are actively campaigning for the GOP nomination and they are Bloomington native Todd Young, and Columbus native Travis Hanks.

    You call Baron Hill a "Blue Dog" (meaning conservative) democrat when he is a Blue Dog in name only. He voted for Pelosi-Obama Care, for "Cap and Trade" and with the liberal machine so often that the Congressman has become just another automatic liberal vote.

    Baron Hill is an embarrassment to Indiana's 9th district. Not only has he swerved into the leftward land of liberalism but he also had the gall to bring the President's chief of staff, Rahm (democrats who disagree with ME are "retards") Emanuel to the 9th district to campaign for him. Talk about being out of touch with the voters!

    Finally, Congressman Hill stands firmly WITH the Obama Administration that gave to a Nigerian, Libyan-trained terrorist the same constitutional rights enjoyed by American citizens. After a short interrogation they read this TERRORIST "his Miranda rights".

    Americans in Indiana's 9th District deserve better.
