27. The Democratic Party in Indiana has Bayh, and that's about it.
There is money in the coffers of county organizations to field and support a statewide ballot. There were many Democrats on that statewide ballot. But no Senate candidate.

One could have been fielded. And supported.

Lugar would have prevailed, almost certainly, but a dialogue could have been established.

My point is that in a climate where the will to challenge an entrenched Republican like Lugar is almost non-existent, a third party agenda is suffocated.
