" Democrats have won the IN House. Success in this is a traditionally red state shows how strong Democrats are at the local level. Winning this chamber also protects a potential target for Republican mid-decade redistricting."
Written and compiled by staff writers and editors, GOVERNING View is an on-the-ground, and sometimes behind-the-scenes, look at the topics we're covering in print and online. From notes on what's up in statehouses, county courthouses and city halls, to encounters with people, places and things, GOVERNING View is a window into the side of state and local government you don't always see.
