INDIANAPOLIS - Senate candidate Evan Bayh is fighting back after heightened scrutiny on his residency and his work in the DC area after leaving Congress in 2010.

In the video above, Bayh responds to the controversy and this week's news that multiple experts had now labeled the race against Republican Todd Young as a "toss up" after Bayh had initially held a double-digit lead in the polls.

According to a recent report from CNN, election officials have Bayh's voting status listed as "inactive" because they couldn’t confirm that he lived in Indianapolis, after sending multiple postcards to Bayh's Indianapolis address.

Bayh also has a home in the Washington, DC area.

Another CNN report outlined a series of circumstances that seemed to suggest Bayh had not spent much time at all at his home in Indianapolis.
