Joe Donnelly spends fourth day of summer tour campaigning in southern Indiana

Joe Donnelly campaigned throughout southern and south-central Indiana, talking about growing the economy with good-paying jobs and thanking Indiana Democrats volunteering on the campaign.

The events marked day four on Joe’s seven-day statewide tour to discuss how he’s working to deliver results for Indiana in the Senate.

A sample of Monday’s events included:

Greeting plant workers at Alcoa as they started their 5 a.m. shift in Newburgh;

Speaking to employees about his regulatory relief bill at One Main Financial in Evansville;

Meeting diners over lunch at The New White Steamer in Washington;

Greeting Indiana Democrats at a seniors-calling-seniors phone bank in Bloomington;

And opening an Indiana Democratic Coordinated Campaign field office in Greenwood.

“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.”

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.
