TERRE HAUTE —

Howey Political Report publisher Brian Howey, James McDowell, a political science professor at Indiana State University, and James McCann, assistant professor of political science at Purdue University, also could not recall a similar situation in Indiana.

McCann also considers himself a skeptic of Burke’s case.

“It strikes me as a very novel argument,” he said, “and definitely a long shot.”

An Indiana court likely will decide the ultimate fate in the contest. DeLaney has said that the Office of Special Counsel will not be involved, since the case is a state issue being tried in a state court.

Fuentes-Rowher also said that “parties are quite willing to fight until the end.”

“Elections are not the end,” he said. “Oftentimes, they’re the beginning of the battle.”
