Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-3rd, has a challenger in his bid for re-election in 2014.
Justin Kuhnle of Kendallville told Political Notebook he will again seek the Democratic Party's nomination for Stutzman's seat representing northeast Indiana.
Kuhnle finished fourth in a six-candidate field won by Kevin Boyd of Fort Wayne in the 2012 Democratic primary election. Boyd received 33 percent of the vote against Stutzman in the general election.
Kuhnle, who turns 33 on Sunday, is a rehabilitation service provider for Bowen Center in Albion. He works with children and their families on developing positive relationships.
Improving education and worker training will be among the issues he concentrates on. He said people tell him their expectations for the federal government are "reducing taxes, finding more efficient ways to spend money and how to fix the education system."
Kuhnle said he has been in contact with 3rd District Democratic officials and, unlike in 2012, will try to raise money for this campaign. Stutzman's campaign had about $200,000 in cash through March, according to his most recent report to the Federal Election Commission.
"I'm just trying to get out, introduce myself to people, get the name recognition going," Kuhnle said.
