The Indianapolis Star lays out the local races in the May 6 primary and notes that, although half the state Senate and all the state House will be up for grabs, voters in Indiana will witness the usual lack of intraparty competition:Of the 25 Senate seats on the ballot, only eight races statewide have more than one candidate on the Republican ballot and only six races statewide have more than one candidate on the Democratic ballot. In the House races, only 14 on the Democratic ballot have more than one candidate, and only 18 Republican races have more than one candidate.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
