(NEW ALBANY) (AP) - A former aide to then-Congressman Lee Hamilton plans to seek his old congressional seat in southern Indiana now held by Republican Todd Young.

Robert Winningham says he'll run for the Democratic nomination in next year's primary in the 9th District. 50-year-old Winningham says he was Hamilton's campaign media director in 1992 and then his assistant for community development, helping on privatization of the Indiana Army Ammunition Plant near Jeffersonville.

Retired Air Force Brig. Gen. Jonathan George, of Bedford, also is seeking the Democratic nomination.

Republican-led redistricting added GOP-leaning areas to the district, but Winningham says he believes the tea party movement that helped Young defeat Democrat Baron Hill in last year's election is fading.
