No Democrat meets Indiana deadline for Senate seat

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The only Democrat seeking to run for the Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Evan Bayh has missed out on qualifying for Indiana's May primary ballot.

State Democratic chairman Dan Parker said Bloomington cafe owner Tamyra d'Ippolito failed to submit the needed 500 signatures in the 7th Congressional District. The Marion County voter registration office said it received just three signatures for her by Tuesday's deadline.

That means the state Democratic Party's 32-member central committee will choose the party's Senate nominee for the November election.

In Indiana, candidates for U.S. Senate must submit 500 certified signatures in each of the state's nine congressional districts to qualify for the primary ballot.

Parker said the central committee won't call a meeting until there's consensus for the party's eventual choice.
