Ex-GOP mayor making bid against Rep. Mrvan for Indiana seat
LAPORTE, Ind. (AP) — A former Republican mayor in northwestern Indiana has started a campaign for the area’s congressional seat, signaling the GOP aims to make its most serious bid in decades in the district that’s long been a Democratic stronghold.
Former LaPorte Mayor Blair Milo announced Friday she would seek the Republican nomination to challenge Democratic Rep. Frank Mrvan, who won his first term in 2020.
Milo is well connected with Indiana’s Republican hierarchy, having spent four years as Gov. Eric Holcomb’s secretary for career connections and talent until stepping down last June. She won elections as LaPorte’s mayor in 2011 and 2015.
