Count me disappointed that Mike Pence will not run for Senate. I like John Hostettler, who already is announced and who is trailing Evan Bayh by just three points in a recent poll — but Hostettler has an antipathy to raising money and insists on running campaigns that aren’t exactly professional by modern standards. I doubt if he can win, although I would love it if he does. Nevertheless, I think Indianans and national officials should try to recruit somebody like former U.S. Rep. David McIntosh, who has run statewide in Indiana before, or even bring Dan Quayle back to Indiana. The race is winnable, but it needs somebody in it who isn’t just a good man, but a superb campaigner.
