Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Chairman Bob Menendez is including Kentucky's GOP Senate primary in a list of  “ugly, blood-letting” contests, and suggests Brad Ellsworth has an edge over Baron Hill for the Democratic nomination in Indiana's U.S. Senate race.

“Rand Paul is giving Trey Grayson the run for his life,” Menendez told Politico.

And, in Indiana.....

........ where a state committee will choose from a list of candidates to replace retiring Sen. Evan Bayh.

Menendez talked up Indiana Rep. Brad Ellsworth as a Senate contender, even as Rep. Baron Hill considers a candidacy of his own.

“Ultimately it’s the decision of the state committee of Indiana, but Ellsworth made a very clear distinction. He did not file for the House and is pursuing his race for the Senate and I think that speaks volumes,” said Menendez.
