It looks like only one person was planning a challenge to Bayh: Tamyra d’Ippolito, who entered the race as a progressive critic of the senator. Just three days ago, d’Ippolito said she was 1,000 signatures short. If she finds them by tomorrow, Democrats need to either stick with her or convince her to withdraw; if she fails, a party committee made of up 32 Democratic officials (ethnic caucus leaders, county leaders) will get to choose a replacement who could bypass a primary.
The proverbial fly in the ointment for Indiana Dems. It seems that there might be a Dem candidate that can get all the required signatures by tomorrow's filing deadline. Check out this post, it's too long to copy but read it all. It is VERY interesting! -SP
