A doctor from Jasper announces Wednesday night at the Fall Festival he will run for Congress.
Dr. Richard Moss will run against Indiana 8th District Congressman Larry Bucshon during the Republican primary in May.
Moss is an ears, nose and throat specialist.
He says immigration is a key issue he will focus his campaign on:
“It’s a national security issue. And for the Republican Party to allow that to go on, a party that prides itself on having a big national defense, it really is a stain on their name and it’s up to the Republican Party, the Republican leadership, the Republican establishment in Washington to get on board and secure that border.”
Moss says the reason he is running is to help restore the Republican Party.
