Joe Donnelly kicks off canvasses in South Bend and Elkhart to start second day of summer tour

Joe Donnelly launched canvass events in South Bend and Elkhart with grassroots volunteers as part of day two of his statewide summer tour to discuss how he’s working to deliver results for Indiana in the Senate.

Joe rallied grassroots supporters canvassing the South Bend and Elkhart communities for his campaign and gave brief remarks about how he plans to continue bringing Hoosier common sense to Washington during six more years in the Senate.

“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.”

Saturday is the second 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 has stops in Daleville, and Noble, Grant, Jay, and Blackford counties.

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.
