Ken de la Bastide reports, "In an unexpected move Monday, Baron Hill, who was unopposed in the May primary, announced his withdrawal from the Senate race against Republican Todd Young. Bayh is expected to announce Tuesday that he will seek the party’s nomination to replace Hill on the Nov. 8 ballot."

Sen. Evan Bayh delivered the commencement address at DePauw University on May 21, 2006. C-SPAN carried the event, which took place at a time when pundits were suggesting that Bayh would be a top contender for the 2008 Democrat presidential nomination. (at left: President Robert G.
