IN-08

         Brad Ellsworth  (D)  128,765  61
         John Hostettler (R)   82,271  39
  • Outlook: Ellsworth has more than $500,000 cash on hand, while Hostettler has $55,000. However, Hostettler has never been good at raising money, partly due to the fact that he does not accept money from PACs. As a result, he is always behind in fundraising. Even though races in this district are close, Hostettler has been able to hold on to this district in the past through grassroot efforts. In the primary, Ellsworth got 43,000 votes. Hostettler recieved 27,000. This race is a toss up

         Mike Sodrel     (R)  100,503  46%
         Eric Schansberg (L)    9,920   5%
  • Outlook: Hill and Sodrel faced each other in 2002 (Hill won) and 2004 (Sodrel won by 1500 votes). Now they're back for the best of three. In the primary, Hill got 3000 more votes than Sodrel.
