Joe Donnelly fires up volunteers in Bloomington and Greenwood on day four of statewide summer tour

Joe Donnelly fired up volunteers at field offices across the southern half of Indiana as part of day four of his statewide summer tour to discuss how he’s working to deliver results for Indiana in the Senate.

Venturing up from morning events in southern Indiana, Joe stopped into a seniors-calling-seniors phone bank at the Monroe County Democratic Headquarters to greet volunteers. To cap off the evening, Joe fired up grassroots supporters as he helped open the Indiana Democrats’ Greenwood field office.

“As Indiana’s hired help in the U.S. Senate, I work for Hoosiers – not any politician or political party. That means hitting the road and getting to every single corner of the state to listen to their concerns and make sure they have a government that works for them,” said Joe Donnelly. “With under 100 days to go until the election, it’s great to see folks everywhere excited and ready to work to keep Hoosier common sense in the Senate.”

“Joe always has Hoosiers’ best interests at heart in every decision he makes. We’re excited to support Joe because we can always count on him to listen to us, figure out what we need, and then fight for that with all his effort in Washington,” said Patricia Shoemaker, a volunteer from Indianapolis. “We know Joe, we trust him, and we’re charged up to keep him in the Senate for another six years.

Monday is the fourth day of Joe’s summer tour, a seven-day tour across Indiana to discuss Hoosiers’ concerns and share how he’ll continue working for them in the Senate. Today, the tour also had stops in Evansville and Washington.

As Indiana’s hired help in the Senate, Joe has relied on hard work and Hoosier common sense to deliver results. 43 of Joe’s legislative proposals have become law, including 21 since President Trump took office. He’s visited all 92 counties each of the last four years to listen to Hoosiers’ concerns, including 544 events in Indiana last year alone. The Lugar Center last year named him the most bipartisan senator of the last 25 years still serving in office.
