REPORTED THIS WEEK BY THE WAYNESVILLE MOUNTAINEER   

The Waynesville Mountaineer reported this week that Hendersonville urologist Dr. Scott Donaldson plans to file as a Democrat candidate for the 11th Congressional District seat now held by Republican Congressman Mark Meadows.

Donaldson ran an unsuccessful campaign for Henderson County commissioner in 2010.

Up to this point, the only other Democrat in the congressional race is Phillip Price.

In his 2010 run for county commissioner, Donaldson championed health care for young people with an emphasis on the fight against obesity.
