INDIANAPOLIS | The Republicans have their best-known recruit officially in the race as state Democrats are still scrambling to find a candidate a day after Democratic Sen. Evan Bayh’s stunning decision not to seek a third term this fall.
Former Republican Sen. Dan Coats’ campaign said Tuesday it has more than enough petition signatures to put him on Indiana’s May primary ballot for what is now expected to be one of the marquee races this fall.
But Mr. Bayh’s abrupt retirement announcement Monday has left Democrats without an official primary candidate for a Senate seat they desperately hope to hold. The 32 members of the state Democratic Central Committee must now select their party’s nominee after the only Democrat seeking to run for the Senate seat missed out on qualifying for the primary ballot.
