Yup, the Senate may be in play
New polling by Rasmussen shows Evan Bayh in danger. Remember, one of the big impacts of the Scott Brown victory was a boost to recruitment. RealClearPolitics has the details:
Indiana Rep. Mike Pence (R) leads Sen. Evan Bayh (D) by 3 points, according to a new Rasmussen poll. Pence, the third ranking Republican in the House, is considering a Senate bid but hasn’t indicated publicly which way he is leaning.
Bayh leads two other Republicans, ex-congressman John Hostettler and State Sen. Marlin Stutzman, but still polled below 50% — not a good sign for an incumbent.
Bayh 44 – Pence 47
Bayh 44 – Hostettler 41
Bayh 45 – Stutzman 33
UPDATE: It now looks like Beau Biden isn’t going to run in Delaware. With Mike Castle in for the GOP, there is a good chance of a Republican pickup of Veep Biden’s old seat.
