The voters of Indiana's 9th District are experiencing a unique sense of deja vu. Every two years, the same two men vie for that area's congressional seat. Baron Hill is the incumbent Democrat, and Mike Sodrel is the Republican challenger. They have traded the seat back and forth since 2002, and they're facing off again.

Correction Oct. 27, 2008

We incorrectly described Baron Hill as "a local attorney" in southeastern Indiana. In fact, Hill has never been a lawyer.
