I just got the following email from Ron Paul.


URGENT! Help Put John Hostettler on the Ballot in Indiana for the Cause of Lib‏erty

Congressman Ron Paul

Dear Supporter,

My friend and former colleague John Hostettler is closing in on having the required number of signatures to put him on the ballot to run for the U.S. Senate. However, John specifically needs more signatures in the 6th and 7th Congressional districts. These districts are represented by Rep. Andre Carson in the 7th and Rep Mike Pence in the 6th.

Volunteers will be at the Holiday Inn North @ the Pyramids in Indianapolis TODAY February 11th from 10:00am - 10:00 pm to collect signatures from anybody who would like to stop by and sign a petition. From 8:30 pm until 10:00pm there will be a time to meet and speak personally with John Hostettler at the same location.

If volunteers would like to gather signatures from family and friends before coming to the motel, there is a Downloadable Form (PDF) of the candidate petition form with John Hosttetler's information already filled in.

Instructions for Petition form

Print out page one and if possible, print page 2 on the back of the form. Fill in the form with the requested signature information. Street addresses are required, P.O box addresses cannot be certified. Drop off your form at the Holiday Inn @ the Pyramids on February 11the between 8:00am and 10:00 pm. Even if you only have one signature, every signature counts, but why not have a few friends sign it too for the cause of liberty.

Directions:
Holiday Inn Indianapolis-N @ The Pyramids
3850 Depauw Blvd, Indianapolis, IN 46268
Take EXIT 27, I-465 & MICHIGAN ROAD (US 421)

In Liberty,

I think it's fair to treat this as a de facto endorsement. I really do hope we can use these forums to help build more nationwide attention among Ron Paul supporters to Hostettler's candidacy. It presents us with a great opportunity that would be a shame if it went to waste. Hopefully, Ron Paul's direct involvement in the campaign can help push that along some.

Add Indiana to the Democratic watch list in 2010. A new Rasmussen Reports survey shows Sen. Evan Bayh, D-Ind., locked in a virtual tie with two top potential Republican opponents.

Sen. Evan Bayh, D-Ind., shown here at the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver, could find himself in a close re-election race this year.

Bayh, who was on Barack Obama's short list for vice presidential candidates, trails Rep. Mike Pence, 47% to 44%, and ahead of former congressman John Hostettler, 44% to 41%. Both are within the margin of error. Rasmussen concludes that Bayh "could find himself in a tough re-election battle this fall."

Yep. That poll was a couple weeks ago. Pence decided not to run. Now the GOP establishment has anointed Coats, who is now considered the front runner, but who is definitely not as strong of a candidate as Pence would have been. If Coats gets his signatures in time (which he might not), this is going to be an exciting heated primary battle with a lot of similarities to the Kentucky one. Hostettler definitely has a shot at winning the primary. And if he does, then he'll come out of it with enough of a level of statewide support that he'll be better equipped to take on Bayh than he probably would have been after a less exciting primary. Hostettler definitely has a real shot at getting elected to the Senate.
