Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller is joining the race for Rep. Todd Young’s seat in Congress, according to Federal Election Commission filings.
Those filings, which were submitted Tuesday, show the Republican candidate will make a run for Indiana’s 9th District House of Representatives seat.
Zoeller has not yet publicly announced his candidacy, however.
In a statement, Zoller says Young has been “a very effective Congressman for the people” in the district.
“It’s no secret that I have been discussing running for this seat with many supporters in the district and have received encouragement, but it’s more appropriate to allow Congressman Young to make his public announcement next Saturday before announcing my own plans,” the statement says.
State Sen. Erin Houchin announced her candidacy for the House seat earlier Wednesday.
