Coats, No Tie

The folks on the Dan Coats for Senate campaign cheerfully note that the Mike Downs Center for Indiana Politics conducted a poll of Indiana’s Senate candidates, and their guy is ahead.

In the GOP primary, the poll found former senator Dan Coats leading with 36 percent, former congressman John Hostettler second at 24 percent, state legislator Marlin Stutzman third at 18 percent, two lesser-known candidates in low single digits, and 13 percent undecided.

In a head-to-head matchup, Coats leads likely Democratic nominee Brad Ellsworth, 47 percent to 31 percent.
