(Rising Sun, Ind.) - A Rising Sun lawyer is taking another step towards a possible run for Congress.
Lane Siekman says he will form an exploratory committee. He plans to file the paperwork with the Federal Election Commission within the next few days.
Siekman made the announcement at a meeting of Switzerland County Democrats last week.
Siekman would run as a Democrat in the sixth district which will be vacated by current Congressman Mike Pence in 2012 as he runs for governor.
The 50-year-old is the executive director of the Ohio County Economic Development Commission and secretary of the Southeastern Indiana Regional Growth Alliance. He also teachers business and law classes at Ivy Tech Community College Southeast.
