The Latest: GOP candidate says Bayh part of DC problem

(Darrin Wright/ 1190 WOWO)

INDIANAPOLIS (AP): Republicans say former Democratic Sen. Evan Bayh’s late entry into the Indiana U.S. Senate race is an example of what people see as a rigged system in Washington.

Republican Senate candidate Todd Young calls Bayh a lobbyist during his time since leaving the Senate in 2010 and that he’s part of the problem in Washington.

Bayh announced Wednesday he would seek to become the Democratic candidate against Young to replace GOP Sen. Dan Coats, who is retiring.

Bayh has been a Washington lawyer and member of several corporate boards since not seeking a third Senate term. Bayh says he’s never been a lobbyist and that the campaign shouldn’t be about politicians trying to tear each other down.
