Bayh will have a credible Republican challenger
NASHVILLE, Ind. - Former state representative Dan Dumezich told Howey Politics Indiana early this afternoon that he is indeed considering a Senate challenge to U.S. Sen. Evan Bayh and said the incumbent has a “fundamental misunderstanding of what the word ‘conflict’ means.”Dumezich
That was in reference to an Indianapolis Star article on Sunday that reported Sen. Bayh’s wife - attorney Susan Bayh - made more than $2 million between 2006 and 2008 serving on a number of corporate heatlh care boards. Her appointments were made after Bayh was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1998. Dumezich (pictured, right) called that “inexcusable” because the senator is “living off what she is making.”
It seems that Dumezich is a formidable Republican fundraiser. This creates an opening for a third party single payer candidate. I don't know enough about Indiana to know if there is anyone who answers to that description.
