Could be bad News for Republicans in Indiana

According to friends in Lake County, polls and surveys show the number of people planning to vote in this election is pretty large
Lake County sits in the northwest corner of Indiana, it has voted for the Democratic nominee in every Presidential election since at least 1960
It has a high Hispanic population
Lake County came out big in 2008
Il Douche may hold on to Indiana, which is fine I guess
But it has to make HRC pretty happy nonetheless
And it has to make Evan Bayh smile broadly

Hopefully Black Oak stays home -- Picture the Hill Country in Kentucky

2. Lake County is heavy union and has a large number of non-whites

For the most part, the county reflexively votes Democratic
It's getting people out to vote that's the problem
The only Republican that has done well there in the last half-century was Richard Lugar

As I said, I hope Black Oak and River Forest stay home
But, I doubt they will
Things may have changed, but it used to be the closest thing to Duck Dynasty north of the Mason Dixon Line

4. VERY hopeful Bayh will win. And the repubs weren't even thinking of Indiana as a loss

The polls are very tight in Indiana between Bayh and Todd Young (R), and it will be excellent if Bayh wins. The crazy thing is that the repubs weren't even factoring in Indiana as a senate seat they might lose. They only started to look at Indiana very late in the game. Bayh is still a big deal in Indiana -- he has had some issues but hopefully he will be another democratic win for us.

6. The senate and SC only hang in the balance

This is absolutely one of the biggest senate races in modern history, to be honest.
