Former Congressman John Hostettler announced yesterday that he will seek the Republican nomination to challenge Sen. Evan Bayh (D-Ind.).

He lost his seat by a lopsided margin in 2006 and, as the linked Politico piece notes, was often a thorn in the party leadership’s side. But Hostettler is the biggest name in the race and his vote against the Iraq war could allow him to tap into the Ron Paul fundraising network.
