IN Focus: Indiana senate race getting national attention

INDIANAPOLIS – Are you sick of the political TV ads yet?

Well hold on.

Less than two weeks until Election Day, it’s about to get worse before it gets better, at least in terms of Indiana’s critical U.S. Senate race.

POLITICO reported a major Republican Super PAC will dump $25 million into six key senate races nationwide including $4 million in Indiana. The goal of the group is to prevent a comeback by Democrat Evan Bayh.

That money comes on top of $500,000 from Hillary Clinton’s campaign meant to try and stop Republican Todd Young.

“Obviously the funders see what we see and that the Bayh, Young race is very close,” Laura Albright said, a CBS4 political analyst.

The candidates are bringing in reinforcements as well.

On Wednesday former vice presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina helped campaign for Young and Tuesday night Sen. Cory Booker was in town for Bayh.

The goal is a small but significant group of voters – those undecided.

According to a recent poll, nearly one in five Hoosiers could still be undecided in the senate race, enough to decide who will win the election.

“If there’s any amount that could change this race, you want to write a blank check,” Albright said. “This is an important seat in an important institution.”
