Ex-State Senator Makes Sixth Bid for Congress
Frazier running as Republican after independent bid in 2000
Former State Senator Bill Frazier is launching his sixth run for Congress.
Frazier plans an announcement tour Wednesday to kick off a run for the Sixth District seat being vacated by gubernatorial hopeful Mike Pence. It's a return to the Republican Party for Frazier, who drew nine-percent of the vote against Pence as an independent in 2000.
Frazier was the Republican nominee against former Democratic Congressman Phil Sharp four times between 1976 and 1992, coming within six points of him in 1980. Frazier also lost in the G-O-P primary in 1994.
He'll face former State Representative Luke Messer and former U.S. Senate candidate Don Bates in next year's primary.
