The junior Senator from the great state of Indiana has attracted an A-list opponent. Former Senator Dan Coats is challenging Obamacare supporter Evan Bayh, putting an eighth Democratic Senate seat in play, with GOP chances in New York State (Gillibrand), Washington State and Wisconsin now dependent on whether the parties there can field strong candidates and in California, on the outcome of the contest for the GOP nomination.
Coats should have no trouble raising money and I expect the first head-to-head matchup will show him within striking distance or just ahead of the left-of-center incumbent.
Evan, maybe you shudda thunk twice before voting “Aye” on the “stimulus” and Obamacare.
Put this one in the tossup, leans GOP category.
