INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A wave of retirements and resignations — along with a rising tide of voter dissatisfaction — could mean Indiana will have five new faces in the U.S. House next year.

Not since 1974, when Democrats made major gains in the wake of the Watergate scandal, have five House seats changed hands in Indiana. The state also will elect a new U.S. senator in 2010, although both the Democrat and Republican vying for retiring Sen. Evan Bayh’s seat have Washington experience.
