Most of Indiana's 100 House districts are strongly Democratic or strongly Republican. That means control of the House of Representatives will come down to a handful of battleground districts--probably fewer than a dozen, political experts say.

Daniels still wants more from lottery, through privatizing or bond issueRestricted Content

Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels is building his campaign for re-election in part on another attempt to cash in a jackpot on the Hoosier Lottery. This time, he's hedging his bet. In case leasing the Hoosier Lottery outright to a private operator is politically impossible, Daniels is exploring a major bond issue backed by its future revenue.

The topic of health care sparked the most spirited comments from business leaders interviewed by IBJ ahead of the May 6 presidential primary. When asked whether they thought Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton would be better for business, executives in manufacturing, exporting, computer technology, logistics and education largely demurred.

J.K. Wall
Indiana's business community is divided in its support during this presidential election. Many Republicans are disenchanted, which has contributed to slow contributions to their candidate, Arizona Sen. John McCain. But those looking to support Democrats are torn this year, as the fierce competition between Clinton and Obama has made Indiana's normally sleepy May primary a battleground.

In early 2007, many expected Marion County Republicans to punt on the chance to unseat Democratic Mayor Bart Peterson. After all, the two-term incumbent had high approval ratings and a campaign war chest of $2.5 million. Attractive GOP candidates willing to embrace the challenge were in short supply.

John Lewis and Wilkins LLP set up shop on Monument Circle in 2005 and since then has grown from the three attorneys to 11.

The afternoon after Greg Ballard's shocking victory at the polls, the mood was sober at Marion County Republican headquarters. Jubilation had given way to reality. Although mayor-elect Ballard described himself "as tired as a guy could get," he has no time for a break. And what the former U.S. Marine Corps lieutenant colonel will do is largely a mystery.

Campaign finance records through the first quarter of 2007 show Rudy Giuliani, the former New York mayor, has raised $176,950 in Indiana. That's more than twice as much as one-time Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, his closest Republican rival.

  1. I am so impressed that the smoking ban FAILED in Kokomo! I might just move to your Awesome city!

  2. way to much breweries being built in indianapolis. its going to be saturated market, if not already. when is enough, enough??

  3. This house is a reminder of Hamilton County history. Its position near the interstate is significant to remember what Hamilton County was before the SUPERBROKERs, Navients, commercial parks, sprawling vinyl villages, and acres of concrete retail showed up. What's truly Wasteful is not reusing a structure that could still be useful. History isn't confined to parks and books.

  4. To compare Connor Prairie or the Zoo to a random old house is a big ridiculous. If it were any where near the level of significance there wouldn't be a major funding gap. Put a big billboard on I-69 funded by the tourism board for people to come visit this old house, and I doubt there would be any takers, since other than age there is no significance whatsoever. Clearly the tax payers of Fishers don't have a significant interest in this project, so PLEASE DON'T USE OUR VALUABLE MONEY. Government money is finite and needs to be utilized for the most efficient and productive purposes. This is far from that.

  5. I only tried it 2x and didn't think much of it both times. With the new apts plus a couple other of new developments on Guilford, I am surprised it didn't get more business. Plus you have a couple of subdivisions across the street from it. I hope Upland can keep it going. Good beer and food plus a neat environment and outdoor seating.
