DETAILS: Now in his second term in the Senate, Bayh is among the most prominent leaders of the Democratic Party. His legislative efforts have focused on strengthening national security, creating more jobs through the growth of small businesses, promoting responsible fatherhood and providing tax relief to families struggling with the rising costs of retirement, college and long-term care for older loved ones.

A leader of the “New Democrat” movement – which espouses “progressive ideas, mainstream values and innovative solutions that reflect changing times” – Bayh has worked to fight partisan gridlock by bringing members of both parties together on common ground.
