Former Sen. Coats to run against Bayh

February 3, 2010

Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh has another challenger for his U.S. Senate seat this year—the man whom he succeeded in 1998. Today, former Republican U.S. Sen. Dan Coats is expected to announce his plans to run against Bayh, a Democrat. Coats retired from the Senate and went on to become ambassador to Germany. Coats joins at least four other Republican candidates with plans to run for the seat.
