The new leader of minority Democrats in the Indiana House of Representatives says her caucus faces an uphill battle holding on to all of its 40 current seats in the November elections.

Rep. Linda Lawson of Hammond tells The Times of Munster in an interview published Sunday she believes it will take a group effort for Democrats to hold onto their 40 seats and perhaps pick off a few of the 60 Republican seats after legislative district boundaries were redrawn last year to benefit Republican candidates.

She says bringing supporters of ousted former Minority Leader Patrick Bauer of South Bend back into the fold will be an essential task when the caucus meets again next week.

Bauer has thrown his support behind Lawson.
