Indiana: Good News for Goode — Republican Field Cleared
Former Congressional aide Greg Goode has cleared the GOP field to take on freshman Rep. Brad Ellsworth (D) in November, according to state filing documents.
Goode initially had company in the GOP primary, but creationism advocate Paul Abramson did not end up filing with the state for the race.
Ellsworth defeated a six-term incumbent by a whopping 22 points in 2006 in the traditionally GOP district. Republicans thought they found their man in Goode, but his disappointing fundraising so far has diminished hopes that he could take the seat from Ellsworth.
