Breaking News: Senator Evan Bayh (D.) Retiring

February 15th, 2010

Evan Bayh, the 2 term Senator from Indiana is retiring. This gives the Republicans a great chance at another seat this November. I think that this could end up being a very interesting election year. I don’t know if Republicans can take back the majority in Congress as they did in 1994, but it is much more of an option than anyone would have expected a year ago. I think the key will be having a unified message akin to the Contract with America. If this message could include some REAL fiscal conservatism that would be great.

In other news, McCain is getting a challenger in his Republican primary. Not everyone likes McCain, but I have to think his name recognition makes him awfully tough to beat.

    I was actually really disappointed with the news about Bayh. He is one of those Democrats that really believes in fiscal responsibility so to see him go is disheartening. As you wrote in that article for WTPP, bipartisanship is really necessary. So long as no one party has a total majority for everything, we’re good.

    Yeah I actually like Bayh more than pretty much all the rest of the Democrats. That being said I won’t complain about the possibility of getting closer to an even Senate. I suspect it is going to be hard for a Democrat to win that seat unless things change dramatically between now and then.
