Democrat Evan Bayh may get into Indiana Senate race (Fox News)
Former Democratic Sen. Evan Bayh is expected to make another run for Senate in Indiana, Democratic officials said Monday, a development that would dramatically improve the party's chances to win back the vacant seat, and Senate control along with it.
Democrats have been courting Bayh for months to run for the seat now held by Republican Sen. Dan Coats, who is retiring. Bayh, who retired in 2010 following two terms, is sitting on around $10 million in left-over campaign funds.
But he held out, and when the primary happened May 3 former Democratic Rep. Baron Hill won the party's nomination.
