DESPITE THE BEST EFFORTS OF THE LUNATIC FRINGE...:

Coats wins right to face Ellsworth (WANE, 04 May 2010)

Coats, 66, retired from the Senate in 1998, has worked as a lobbyist and was U.S. ambassador to Germany under President George W. Bush. He overcame spirited challenges from four, including state Sen. Marlin Stutzman, a tea party favorite who was endorsed by South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint, and former Rep. John Hostettler, who had the support of one-time presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas.

...the GOP just keeps nominating guys who can actually retain these seats, not just win them once, like in '80 and '94.
