A political professor says while this year might be difficult for Democrats running for Congress in Indiana, it doesn't mean they are out for the long haul.

Mike Downs Center director Andrew Downs says Democrats may do better than expected in some races, and that could be a good sign for the future.

History shows candidates willing to start running again soon after losing a close contest can be successful the next time.

The 2nd congressional district has been the land of second chances with two candidates winning the seat two years after suffering a loss. Republican Jackie Walorski is hoping the trend continues. She started running less than five months after losing two years ago. But her opponent, Democrat Brendan Mullen, says the district doesn't need a professional candidate.
