    untill Coats  threw in his hat. Ellsworth had soundly defeated Hosttetler for house in 2006.

    •  But that was in a different year (0+ / 0-)

      Take the margins of that race in 2006 and flip it around and that is what you get in 2010.

      •  The flip margins may be the same with Coats (0+ / 0-)

        but not with Hosttetler who does not have the name recognition Of former sen.Coats. Hosttetler lost his o8 base badly in embarrasing form. something like 65-45.

      •  61-39 margin (0+ / 0-)

        was the 2006 margin of victory.  I believe the time line was Hostettler announces his sen race - Bayh Retires, Ellsworth is picked to Run(unofficially)then Coats throws in his hat.Who would of thought Coats or any former Sen would rerun. Hostty was the odds on favorite to win at that moment in time when Ellsworth commited.
