IN: Muslim Rep Has Name Recognition

Congressman Andre Carson had an advantage in Indiana's crowded Seventh Distict Democratic primary.

He was the incumbent, and he had name recognition because of his grandmother, the late Congresswoman Julia Carson, who died in December after 11 years in Congress.

Andre Carson earned the nomination by defeating several serious contenders last night: former state Health Commissioner Woody Myers and state Representatives David Orentlicher and Carolene Mays.
