SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — A South Bend doctor says he's joining the Republican race for the northern Indiana congressional seat that Democrat Joe Donnelly is giving up to run for the U.S. Senate.

Greg Andrews will be the second challenger to former state Rep. Jackie Walorski, who is running again after nearly defeating Donnelly for the 2nd District seat last year.

The 52-year-old Andrews says he has the expertise to make a difference on health care policy and medical malpractice issues. The South Bend Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/rrMA2G) that Andrews has stepped down as a staff physician at the Indiana Health Center and Project Homecoming clinics in South Bend to campaign full time.

LaPorte School Board president Mitch Feikes also has announced he's running for the GOP nomination in next May's primary.
