In the 2016 political landscape, a pair of the state’s political big dogs — Republican Gov. Mike Pence and former Democratic U.S. Sen. Evan Bayh — has potential candidates holding their breath and waiting on them.
Until Pence says otherwise, he’s the clear pick for his party for the governor’s office. But he’s been hinting otherwise in the past few months, with moves that have Washington pundits talking up a possible White House run.
And Bayh, who led the party through its halcyon days in Indiana as a two-term governor and two-term U.S. senator, could possibly win back the governor’s office or one of the state’s two U.S. Senate seats — both of which are on the ballot in 2016 — should he decide to return to Indiana politics.
