A University of Notre Dame official says Democratic Party leaders are encouraging him to run for northern Indiana's 2nd District U.S. House seat, and first-term incumbent Republican Jackie Walorski also may face primary competition.

Joseph Bock, director of global health training for Notre Dame's Eck Institute for Global Health, says the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is encouraging him to run and he could formally announce his candidacy this month.

Democratic leaders have been searching for a candidate to challenge Walorski, who narrowly won a first term in 2012 over Brendan Mullen. Mullen decided not to run again.

Tea party member Curt Nisly of Elkhart County tells the Tribune he's considering running in the Republican primary because Walorski could lose next year.
