Former Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh, the current Democratic nominee for his old Senate seat, is hardly at his Indiana home, according to neighbors.

"I have not seen him around here recently," George Landis, Bayh's neighbor, told Politico. He also says he used to see Bayh come and go. "He probably still has the ownership of the condo."

Patrice Rogers, another neighbor, was surprised to hear Bayh lives nearby.

"Evan Bayh lives next door? Are you serious? I never knew that, I didn't, I'm sorry. I've been over here three years and never knew he lived over here," she said.

According to a Monmouth University poll from mid-August, Bayh is seven points ahead of his Republican opponent, Congressman Todd Young.

Bayh was forced to defend his Indiana residency weeks ago, after news surfaced of his multiple homes in Washington D.C. and his condo in Florida.

"We have a home in D.C. and we have a home in Indianapolis. We list them both for different things," Bayh said in an interview.

"I think you can follow me around here, people know me, they know my service," Bayh continued. "I was representing my state when my opponent was in high school. I mean, I know our state. I love our state. Five generations. I don't think that's going to be a compelling issue."

Although he says he spends "a lot" of time in Indiana, Bayh refused to "reduce it to a number."

After that interview, Bayh drew negative attention when he mistakenly gave the wrong address after being questioned on his residency by a TV reporter.

"Well," he said, "1142 Canterbury Court, Indianapolis, Indiana. It's on my drivers license."

Bayh's condo is located at 1142 Canterbury Square, though Canterbury Court is nearby.
