Washington (CNN) - Former Rep. Mike Sodrel of Indiana is making another bid for his old seat, which could set up a fifth faceoff against Rep. Baron Hill, the Democrat who controls the seat.
Sodrel officially announced his 2010 bid in a message to supporters early Monday.
"The Obama administration and Pelosi's Congress are doing all the wrong things. They have spent the last year on health care legislation. We need to get the economy back on track," he wrote.
Sodrel and Hill first ran against each other in 2002, with Hill, the two-term incumbent at the time, narrowly winning. Sodrel ousted Hill in 2004 by a razor-thin margin, but Hill narrowly won the 2006 rematch. Hill beat Sodrel by 20 points in 2008.
Two other Republicans are also campaigning to take on Hill.
Indiana's 9th congressional district covers much of southern Indiana. John McCain won the district by less than 1 percent in the last presidential election.
