Dan Coats to Challenge Evan Bayh

Be sure to thank the people of Massachusetts for pushing the proverbial snowball down the hill when they elected Scott Brown to Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat and showed Republicans across the country that this was the year to run for office if you wanted to win an election.  Thanks to the Democrats’ unpopular liberal agenda and political malpractice in Massachusetts, Republican recruitment has been on a major upswing in recent weeks.  Today the upswing continues as former Senator Dan Coats has signaled his intention to challenge Evan Bayh later this year.

It’s no secret that Bayh is a formerly safe Democrat who is now vulnerable thanks to his liberal tendencies being exposed for everyone to see.  His re-election hopes were already hanging by a thread against Rep. Hostettler.  With Coats (Bayh’s predecessor) entering the race, Bayh will now face a well-known, well-financed, conservative opponent who is popular both with the Republican base and the State of Indiana as a whole.

There are some conservatives already expressing reservations but these are unwarranted.  So what if Coats didn’t run when Erick Erickson wanted him to run. Coats believes what we believe and is ready, willing, and able to serve.  With Coats in the race, 2010 could be the year we say Bayh Evan and replace him with one of our own.

We’ll be on the lookout for some polls on this one.
