EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — A conservative candidate is launching a Republican primary challenge to southwestern Indiana Congressman Larry Bucshon (boo-SHAHN').
Andrew McNeil tells the Evansville Courier & Press (http://bit.ly/16uVPAK ) he'll seek to deny Bucshon the GOP nomination in next May's primary for a third term representing the 8th congressional district.
The 39-year-old McNeil is from the Owen County community of Freedom. He is a territory manager for the Ronnoco coffee company and operates a family farm with organic gardens and sheep.
His campaign website highlights opposition to the new federal health care law, abortion and increased federal debt.
Bucshon defeated tea party favorite Kristi Risk in last year's Republican primary with 58 percent of the vote.
