Party : Democratic



Stuck in a Democratic superminority for the entirety of her 16 years in the Indiana Senate, Karen Tallian announced that she had had enough during the 2021 redistricting session -- a Republican-run process quickly assessed as likely to lock in the supermajority for the next decade. Her resignation -- "at a point in my life where I want to use my remaining energy to produce more immediate results,'' she told the Times of Northwest Indiana -- opened a vacancy that Democratic party leaders filled with Rodney Pol Jr., a Chesterton attorney who finished ahead of four other would-be successors to Tallian, two of whom will be among Pol's three opponents for nomination in the May 3 primary.
