SULLIVAN, Ind. (AP) - An Indiana House race next year could pit a law school student named Jesse James against Republican incumbent Bruce Borders, a longtime Elvis Presley impersonator.

The 24-year-old James recently announced that he will seek the Democratic nomination for House District 45. The district includes parts of Sullivan, Vigo, Knox, Daviess and Greene Counties in southwestern Indiana.

James is a former Wabash College student body president who says
he announced his candidacy now because in politics, waiting is time
lost. He says representatives should be active, accountable and accessible.

Borders is a former mayor of Jasonville and has held the seat since 2004.
