Ind. Gov't. - "Beyond the Bushes: Political Dynasties in State and Local Government "

That is the title of an October article by Dylan Scott in Governing. the subhead: "American politics is a forest filled with intricate family trees, and many offices seem almost hereditary."

This is certainly the case in the Indiana General Assembly. When I began working in the Statehouse, former Governor Frank O'Bannon's father Robert was the chair of Senate Finance. Current Speaker Brian Bosma's father was a long-time member of the Senate. Other generational names that come readily to mind are Bray and Bainbridge, but that is just a start.
