Teabagistan (Indiana) is a mess. The voters claim they hate the swamp but their politicians are about as swampy as you can get.

"Pence is the unsurprising front-runner in his Republican primary thanks to the $1.2 million he has raised with the help of his powerful brother and other GOP bigwigs; half of his fundraising haul has come from out of state." [FiveThirtyEight: What’s At Stake In The First Big Primary Day Of 2018]
