Kevin Boyd, the Democratic congressional candidate in Indiana's 3rd District, might have a problem with name recognition.
Rep. Andre Carson, D-7th, had the job of introducing his party's congressional nominees during the Democrats' state convention Saturday at Grand Wayne Center.
When Carson came to the 3rd District candidate, he instructed delegates, "Let's give it up for Tommy Schrader!"
Schrader finished a distant second to Boyd in the six-candidate field in the May 8 primary election.
"Boyd, Boyd!" delegates shouted at the stage.
"Make some noise for Boyd," he said. "We've got a staffer who's going to do a hundred push-ups when this is over."
Asked how the error could have been made, Ben Ray, press secretary for the state Democratic organization, said, "Your guess is as good as mine at this point."
Schrader won an at-large nomination to Fort Wayne City Council in 2011 but was disqualified for the general election because he had registered to vote in Green Bay, Wis.
