Buschon, a heart surgeon and native of Newburgh, Indiana, has held the seat since he was first elected in 2010.

Terre Haute attorney William Tanoos has announced he is running for Congress in Indiana’s 8th congressional district. Tanoos will run as a Democrat against incumbent Rep. Larry Bucshon.

“Growing up I remember kind of the optimism of the American dream, and there’s a lot that’s been said lately that the American dream may be dead, and I don’t believe that,” Tanoos says. “I certainly think we need to work to revive it and rebuild the middle class.”

Tanoos says his previous work as a disability attorney will inform things he would like to do in government.

“I think it gives you a hands-on, face-to-face perspective with the very types of voters that I’m trying to reach out to and quite frankly, our Congress should be representing,” Tanoos says. “And those are again- good, hard-working Hoosiers that have fallen victim to circumstance through no fault of their own.”

Tanoos practices law in Indiana’s Northern and Southern Districts. He is a graduate of South Vigo High School, Indiana University, and the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law.
