Wonder what you would find if you frisked Indiana’s Republican Senate Primary yesterday?
Answer: Former U.S. Senator Dan Coats is the chosen one.
FOX News reports:
Former Sen. Dan Coats won the Republican nomination for a U.S. Senate seat in the midwestern state of Indiana Tuesday, in a primary election contest seen as a test of strength for the grassroots conservative tea party movement against the party establishment.
In Indiana this fall, Coats, a former U.S. ambassador to Germany, will face Democrat Brad Ellsworth, currently a member of the U.S. House, whose nomination is assured.
Republican leaders recruited Coats in hopes he could capture a seat now held by retiring centrist Democratic Sen. Evan Bayh.
Coats overcame spirited challenges from four other candidates, including state Sen. Marlin Stutzman, a tea party favorite, and former Rep. John Hostettler, who had the support of onetime presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul, a libertarian-leaning Republican.
CONGRATULATIONS DAN COATS!
