      GOP Tries New Face Against Hill

      The big news here is that the Republican candidate is not Mike Sodrel. Sodrel lost to Baron Hill (D) in 2002, unseated him in 2004, then lost again in 2006 and 2008 -- the latter time by 20 points. Republicans, feeling Hill is vulnerable but knowing that Sodrel couldn't beat him, are going with Todd Young, an attorney who defeated Sodrel in the primary.
