Baron Hill Will Run for US Senate

Five-time Democratic congressman Baron Hill from Indiana's hotly contested 9th District told a Columbus Jefferson/Jackson dinner audience that he plans to run for the Senate seat being vacated by the retiring Dan Coats. He will make a formal announcement in June. In Hill's 1990 Senate campaign against Coats he famously walked the length of Indiana to build his statewide name recognition, and he says he might consider doing it again. But he expects his main focus to be economic: "Wages have fallen way behind, so I want to focus like a laser beam on what we can do to get those up." Read more from ABC News here.
