Young defeats Bayh in Indiana Senate race

Young BayhRep. Todd Young (R) is the projected winner for the open Indiana Senate race, defeating former Sen. Evan Bayh (D) in a major upset.

Young was seen as the favorite in the traditionally red state until Bayh made a last-minute decision in mid-July to jump into the race for the seat being vacated by GOP Sen. Dan Coats, upending the battle for the Senate majority. Bayh’s entry gave Young a smaller window to introduce himself to voters statewide.

Bayh entered the scene with a double-digit lead and nearly $10 million in funding that made the Hoosier State look favorable for Democrats. Bayh is also a household name in Indiana politics — the former senator also served as a two-term governor and his father, Birch, was a senator from 1963 to 1981.

    The Democrats aren’t what they used to be. The voters of the Hoosier State decided to embrace the future rather than to return to the failed past of Democrat control. Senator Young will be part of the ruling class in the Senate. Mr. Bayh would have been part of what will probably be the troublemaking minority.
