Fort Wayne Man Running for Congress for Fifth Time

A Fort Wayne man is not giving up on his attempt to earn a public office seat.

Tommy Schrader has announced he is running for the Democratic nomination for the 3rd District U.S. House seat. He's the first announced Democratic candidate for the seat, which third term Republican Marlin Stutzman is leaving in order to run for U.S. Senate. 

Schrader previously ran for Congress in 2006, 2010, 2012, and 2014. He's run twice for Fort Wayne City Council and twice for Fort Wayne mayor. He also tried and failed at getting the Republican nomination for city clerk in 2007.
