Former Evansville Mayor Jonathan Weinzapfel (D) won’t challenge Rep. Larry Bucshon (R) in 2018. He had previously been considering a run. The district is heavily Republican, but Weinzapfel’s high profile and fundraising ability could have made the race more competitive than it has been in recent years.

Weinzapfel: “In the end, after much soul searching and deep discussions with family and friends, it is clear to me that the time is not right for me to re-enter the political arena.” (14 News)
