U.S. Sen. Todd Young is a political death star when he’s matched up against an opponent of congressional pedigree.

In 2010, he won a four-way Republican primary by defeating former congressman Mike Sodrel. His victory nearly wiped out his campaign war chest, but he raised $357,000 in the third quarter and overcame a $700,000 cash disadvantage to defeat Democrat U.S. Rep. Baron Hill, 52-42 percent that autumn.
