Democratic officials endorse Boyd

Kevin Boyd announced Wednesday he has been endorsed in his bid for Congress by the 3rd District Democratic Committee.

Boyd is among six candidates for the Democratic nomination in the May 8 primary election. First-term Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-3rd, is unopposed in the Republican primary.

Ben Ray, press secretary for the Indiana Democratic Party, confirmed the endorsement of Boyd.

Boyd, 57, is the pastor of a Presbyterian church in Fort Wayne. He sought the 3rd District nomination in 2006, and Democrats nominated him for the 1st District seat on the Fort Wayne City Council in 2007.

Also running in the 3rd District Democratic primary are Stephen Hope, Justin Kuhnle, John Forest Roberson, Tommy Schrader and David Sowards.
