IDP Statement on Bayh Announcement of Candidacy for U.S. Senate

INDIANAPOLIS – John Zody, Chairman of the Indiana Democratic Party, released the following statement after former U.S. Senator Evan Bayh formally filed paperwork and announced his intentions to fill the ballot vacancy in the U.S. Senate race.

“This week, Baron Hill showed courage by putting Hoosiers ahead of his own political future. He and everyone else knows how high the stakes are in this election and the importance of protecting and fighting for the middle class in the U.S. Senate. Indiana Democrats look forward to having a commonsense leader who will work with Sen. Joe Donnelly, and as our meeting to fill the vacancy approaches, I look forward to discussing Senator Bayh’s candidacy with the State Central Committee.”
