Indiana native Dan Canon has announced that he will run for Congress in the state's 9th District.
Canon is one of counsel for the pioneering Kentucky and Indiana marriage-equality cases ( Bourke v. Beshear, Love v. Beshear and Love v. Pence ), and counsel for the Kentucky plaintiffs in the landmark Supreme Court case of Obergefell v. Hodges, according to the website of his law firm, Clay Daniel Walton Adams, PLC.
A press release stated that Canon, 39, is a first-time candidate who says people in his district are ready for a member of Congress who truly represents south-central Indiana. Canon added, "Our current representative [Republican Trey Hollingsworth] isn't working on those issues. He's an opportunistic multi-millionaire who came to Indiana just to buy a seat in Congress."
