Senatorial Candidate

Evan Bayh


Bayh, a son of former Sen. Birch Bayh, was elected governor of Indiana in 1988 and served two terms before winning a Senate seat in 1998. During his Senate career, Bayh served on five Senate committees, including Armed Services, the Select Committee on Intelligence, Special Committee on Aging, and the Small Business Committee.  Bayh stated, “With the challenges facing Indiana and our country, I can no longer sit on the sidelines and watch as partisan bickering grinds Washington to a halt,” Bayh said. “Hoosier families deserve more and I’ve decided to run to take their cause to the U.S. Senate.”
