    though Shelli Yoder seems likely to run again in IN-09, but I just don't see how she can overcome the GOP numbers in Johnson and Morgan Counties. Mullen may run again in IN-02, but he may face a turnout issue in St. Joseph County compared to 2012. Connie Lawson seems a lock for Secretary of State in 2014, and the open Treasurer and Auditor races will likely go to party hacks on the GOP side, though Tim Berry may try to switch back to being Auditor. I am also afraid we could lose more ground in the Indiana Senate in 2014, where Sen. Lindel Hume (D-Princeton) and Richard Young (D-Milltown) face redrawn seats.

    "So there's a time for silence, and there's a time for waiting your turn. But if you know how you feel, and you so clearly know what you need to say, you'll know it. I don't think you should wait. I think you should speak now." -Taylor Swift

      Sandy Blanton could hold Young's seat though. It is perfect for her as she is popular in the most conservative parts of the seat that Young would have trouble in. She is one of the best campaigners out there, only barely losing this time in a much more conservative district with an equally popular incumbent.

    •  Is Mourdock term-limited at Treas? (1+ / 0-)
