Bloomington, Ind., woman says she'll challenge Bayh in primary
Advertisements [?]
Bayh supports the health insurance and Big Pharma industries against the interest of the people of Indiana. Bayh's wife is a corporate whore that sits on the board of Wellpoint. It should not come as a surprise that Bayh opposed single payer and a vigorous public option, which the House bill does not have!

I won't vote for Bayh ever again!

Bloomington, Ind., woman says she'll challenge Bayh in primary

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. A Bloomington restaurant owner says she is organizing a campaign to challenge U.S. Sen. Evan Bayh for the Democratic nomination next year.

Tamyra d'Ippolito says she wants to be a proponent for the poor and that she wasn't pleased with Bayh's stance on health care reform. She says she's a colon cancer survivor and has been without health and dental insurance since opening Ragazzi Arte Cafe five years ago.

The 50-year-old d'Ippolito was campaign chairwoman for Gretchen Clearwater, who unsuccessfully challenged Rep. Baron Hill in last year's Democratic primary.

She says she's organizing volunteers to collect the 4,500 petition signatures she needs to have her name included on the May primary ballot.
