Evan Bayh, the Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate seat in Indiana, incorrectly stated his own address Saturday, lending further credence to accusations he is disconnected from the Hoosier state.

In an interview with WLFI-TV in Lafayette, Indiana, Bayh was asked his address, to which he responded:

“1142, uh, Canterbury Court, [Unit] C. It’s on my driver’s license.”

But a review of Bayh's Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicle records shows that his address is actually Canterbury Square, not Court. The address Bayh told WLFI-TV is located several blocks away from his home address and in the same neighborhood.

Bayh has been dogged by claims from Republicans that he left the Indiana in favor of Washington, D.C.

Last week, it was revealed that Bayh listed his permanent address in Washington upon departing the Senate in 2011. CNN also reported that Bayh's Indiana voting status is inactive.

Despite the allegations of abandoning Indiana, Bayh holds a firm seven-point lead over Republican challenger Rep. Todd Young, according to a poll from Monmouth University.
