Breaking: Indiana Senator Evan Bayh to Retire

Another one bites the dust.

Bye Bye Bayh

Democratic Senator Evan Bayh of Indiana announced this morning that he will retire and not seek re-election this year. Former Senator Dan Coats (R-IN) announced last week that he would challenge Bayh this year.

FOX News reported:

Democratic Sen. Evan Bayh will not seek re-election this year, Fox News has learned.

The two-term Indiana senator is known as a moderate Democrat. His retirement gives Republicans yet another opportunity to pick up a seat in a year when several incumbent Democrats are considered vulnerable.

Former GOP Sen. Dan Coats had been planning to challenge Bayh in November.

The Campaign Spot reported that the filing deadline to run for federal office in the Hoosier State is tomorrow or Friday.
