Bayh Starts to Spend War Chest

From The Hill:

Retiring Sen. Evan Bayh has donated $1 million to help elect Rep. Brad Ellsworth, who is running to succeed him.

Bayh (D-Ind.), who announced in February he won’t run for re-election this fall after amassing a $13 million re-election fund, described the donation as an attempt to help Ellsworth win his seat.

“This is a million dollar vote of confidence in Brad Ellsworth and Indiana Democrats,” Bayh said in a statement released by the Indiana Democratic Party. “Though I am leaving the Senate at the end of my term, I am determined to help Brad Ellsworth and the 2010 Democratic ticket with the financial resources they need to run a successful campaign.”
