Senator Evan Bayh (D-IN) has released a statement on Monday saying he will not run for reelection this year. The Senator cited polarizing politics in Washington as his decision not to run for reelection.
Bayh has held a considerable lead in the polls against his prospective Republican opponent, Dan Coates. Democrats are looking for Bayh’s replacement for this year’s senatorial race.
Bayh is a former Governor of Indiana and has served two terms in the senate.
