Joe campaigns in Southwest Indiana on day five of statewide “Hoosier Highways” RV Tour

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Joe Donnelly today made nine stops in Terre Haute, Evansville and southwest Indiana on his statewide RV tour. The stops are part of his six-day “Hoosier Highways” tour that will take him to every corner of Indiana to discuss Hoosiers’ concerns.

“I’m running for re-election because we need more Hoosier common sense in Washington,” Joe Donnelly said. “It’s been my honor to be Indiana’s hired help in the Senate, and I’m excited to continue to work hard and reach across the aisle to deliver results for Hoosiers. This RV tour is an opportunity for me to travel across our state to listen to Hoosiers’ concerns and discuss how I can continue to fight for them. The Senate only succeeds when we can take Indiana’s ideas to Washington, not the other way around.”

“While it seems like most politicians don’t care about anything besides themselves, Joe’s looking out for hard-working Hoosiers like us every single day,” said Bill Yockey, President of the Southwest Indiana Retired Miners. “When the health care benefits that coal miners had been promised were put at risk, Joe reached across the aisle and protected them. Now he’s looking to do the same to protect the pensions we’ve earned. He’s focused on using common sense to get things done, not politics.”

Throughout his time in the Senate, Joe has relied on hard work and Hoosier common sense to deliver results for Indiana. 25 bills and amendments Joe has introduced in the Senate have become law, including the Jacob Sexton Military Suicide Prevention Act. He’s traveled all across the state, visiting every county each of the last three years to listen to Hoosiers and talk with workers and small businesses about how to cut red tape and create jobs. He has reached across the aisle to fight for veterans and service members, combat the opioid epidemic, and stop companies from outsourcing jobs. His commonsense approach recently led him to be named the second-most bipartisan Member of Congress.
