Barack Obama is campaigning in Indiana Wednesday with a man considered to be among the top prospects for a running mate.

Senator Evan Bayh is spending the day with Obama in his home state of Indiana, a generally Republican-leaning state that's seen as a battleground this year. He's the son of former Senator Birch Bayh and served two terms as governor. The onetime backer of Hillary Rodham Clinton is also a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Bayh says Obama would bring "a breath of fresh air" to Washington.

For his part, Obama calls Bayh "one of the finest U.S. senators." But Obama is giving no hint that he's nearing a vice presidential decision.
