By all accounts, John M. Mutz, a veteran officeholder who is the Republican candidate for governor of Indiana, should be breezing to victory over his 32-year-old opponent in a state where the national GOP ticket is expected to swamp the Democrats. Instead, the 52-year-old Mutz is scrambling for his political life, grateful for an endorsement from President Reagan and hoping to grab any coattails he can from Indiana's controversial GOP vice presidential nominee, Sen. Dan Quayle.

A Shelby County court Monday ruled that Secretary of State Evan Bayh met the constitutional five-year residency requirement to be governor. Circuit Judge Charles D. O'Connor concluded that the Democratic candidate did not lose his Indiana residency, as Republicans had argued, when he worked as an attorney in Washington in 1983 and 1984. O'Connor found that Bayh had always intended to return to his home state and never formally established residence elsewhere.

Vice presidential nominee Dan Quayle's home state gave its 12 electoral votes to his running mate, George Bush by a solid 61%-39% margin. Evan Bayh, 32, heir to a liberal Democratic family but himself a moderate, will become Indiana's first Democratic governor in 20 years after winning 52% of the vote. He will be the youngest governor in the nation. His victory is a measure of family revenge against Quayle, who gained his Senate seat in 1980 by defeating Birch Bayh, Evan Bayh's father.
