Democrat Evan Bayh failed in his bid return to the Senate after six years of retirement that was spent racking up millions through positions at lobbying firms and in private equity.
Republican Rep. Todd Young, a former U.S. Marine who has represented Indiana in the House of Representatives, was declared the winner by the Associated Press.
Bayh opened up a big lead in the polls after he surprised the political world by announcing that he would run for Senate in July. Bayh maintained a lead over Young throughout most of the campaign, but the lead slowly eroded due to a successful effort by opponents that labeled him as a Washington, D.C., insider.
