A Dothan physician announced his plans to run for Congress in Alabama’s 2nd Congressional District.
37-year-old Dr. Craig Scmidtke is making his first ever run for political office.
Tuesday, Schmidtke stood in Dothan’ Poplar Head Park to officially make his announcement with his wife and three children.
He says he prides himself as not being a politician saying his outsider status could bring promise back to congress.
Alabama’s 2nd Congressional District is currently represented by Terry Everett who is not seeking re-election.
