Joe Donnelly spends first day of summer RV tour campaigning through central Indiana

Joe Donnelly kicked off his summer RV tour Friday with several stops across central Indiana. The events began Joe’s seven-day statewide RV tour to discuss how he’s working to deliver results for Indiana in the Senate.

A sample of Friday’s events included:

Greeting patrons and employees at Unleavened Bread in Indianapolis, a cafe that helps ex-offenders and recovering addicts get back on their feet;

A press conference at the Avondale Meadows YMCA in Indianapolis on defending protections for pre-existing conditions and affordable health care in the wake of the new “junk” plans launched by the Trump Administration;

A walk down Main St. in Zionsville to talk to Hoosier voters and tour local businesses;

A meet-and-greet with central Indiana labor members at UAW Local 685 in Kokomo;

And throwing out the first pitch at the Kokomo Jackrabbits’ game.

“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 Donnelly is protecting access to affordable health care so he can ensure that every Hoosier has a fair shot to succeed,” said Dr. Andrew Bridge, a dermatologist from Indianapolis who spoke at the press conference. “He stands up to special interests in Washington who want to strip protections for pre-existing conditions, because he knows having arthritis, diabetes, or a history of cancer is no reason for someone to lose their health care. Re-electing Joe is an absolute must for anyone who believes we need to expand health care coverage instead of taking it away.”

Throughout his time in the Senate, Joe has relied on hard work and Hoosier common sense to deliver results for Indiana. 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, and The Lugar Center last year named him the most bipartisan senator of the last 25 years still serving in office.
