% approval rating, was challenged by Vanderburgh County (Vanderburgh County, Indiana) Sheriff Brad Ellsworth in this swing district that includes Evansville (Evansville, Indiana) and Terre Haute (Terre Haute, Indiana). Hostettler had a history of winning tough reelections, but Ellsworth was considered to be his strongest opponent. The district has been nicknamed "The Bloody Eighth" due to its frequent ousting of incumbent congressmen, which has occurred in 1958, 1966, 1974, 1978, 1982, 1994, and 2006. Despite the competitive nature of the district, Hostettler was traditionally slow to raise money and lagged far behind his opponent in fundraising totals throughout the election. Rumors circulated in September that Hostettler had essentially given up on his campaign when he failed to hold any events on Labor Day weekend, the traditional kickoff of the campaign season. In the end, Ellsworth defeated Hostettler by a 61%-39% margin, the most lopsided loss for a House incumbent since 1994.
