I asked Sen. Evan Bayh today about his plans for the Indiana governor’s race in 2012.
“I don’t know what I will be doing next. I will say there has been a lot of speculation and over-speculation, I should say. I don’t want to lead anybody on. I will think about what I do next after Thanksgiving and New Year’s and then I have a decision to make, but for right now this is my sole focus and that’s where it ought to remain,” said Bayh, who spoke to WTHR in a satellite interview.
On the subject of Brad Ellsworth, the Democrat who wants to replace him, Bayh thinks Ellsworth really is the type of man and politician Hoosiers can relate to.
“I would say to Hoosiers if you are disgusted with Washington, fed up with politics as usual, here is a good man who has good values. He’s independent. He’s for keeping taxes down and American jobs at home. That’s a pretty good package,” said the senator.
Hear more from Sen. Bayh on Indiana Insiders this Sunday morning at 9:30 on Channel 13.
