Campaign[edit]

In September, Bayh had $6.5 million cash on hand.[1] Scott's strategy of trying to paint Bayh as too liberal failed to gain traction.[2] Bayh was viewed early in 2004 as a serious vice presidential candidate for John Kerry. Bayh was on the final shortlist for a Kerry running mate, but North Carolina Senator John Edwards was chosen as Kerry's running mate.
