(WASHINGTON) — Rep. John Lewis’ waffling over the Democratic presidential nomination has earned him a challenger of his own in the November election.
Markel Hutchins, a 30-year-old Atlanta minister, announced Wednesday that he would run for Lewis’ Atlanta congressional district.
Hutchins said he had been considering a bid for several weeks but was ultimately swayed by Lewis’ recent “flip-flopping” over whether he supports Hillary Rodham Clinton or Barack Obama in the Democratic presidential race.
