  1. Rokita will now likely run in 2016 when Bayh is likely to retire.

    • Well,

      We still have a Candidate in this Race: Former Rep. John Hostettler. He only trailed Bayh 44-41 in the latest Poll.

  4. I think Gov Mitch Daniels is a Presidental darkhorse in 2012. He has a 70% approval after a rocky start. He raised the sales tax and the cigarette but he capped Property taxes to just 1% of the homes value. This was a huge relief to homeowners.

  5. Merlin, Bayh aint retiring PERIOD, he doesn’t want to end up like his father did in 1980 when after 18 years the IN voters kicked him out.

    I expect Bayh to run for Governor again either in 2012 or 2016.
