  • Sen. Joe Donnelly says he has black and Indian American staffers, ‘but’ they’re terrific (BUT)

    Sen. Joe Donnelly (Ind.), a conservative Democrat in one of the tightest reelection battles in the country, made a cringeworthy and puzzling statement about some minorities on his staff during a debate Tuesday night. To begin, here’s a quick vocab refresher. The definition of the word “but,” according to Google, is “to introduce something contrasting with what has already been mentioned." So it was strange when Donnelly, in what seemed like a genuine effort to compliment his aides, said this when asked how he would bring diversity into his staffing: “Our state director is Indian American, but he does an...

    Full title "Joe DonnellyÂ’s Debate Gaffe Exposes The Double Standard The Media Uses To Protect Democrats And Harm Republicans" Indiana Democrat Senator Joe Donnelly is locked in a tight reelection battle with Mike Braun. Braun has led in six of the last seven polls outside the margin of error, the only outlier is a Donnelly +1 poll on October 22. Indiana is a Republican +18 state that President Trump carried by 19 points in 2016 but somehow, once 538.com throws in their special sauce they have Donnelly as a 2:1 favorite. Whatever. Last night, Donnelly and Braun faced off in...

    Some odd phrasing from @SenDonnelly attempting to highlight the diversity of his staff: "Our state director is Indian American, but he does an amazing job Followed up with: “Our director of all constituent services, she’s African American. But she does an even more incredible job than you could ever imagine.”

    The Indiana Senate race continues to trend towards Hoosier businessman and Republican candidate Mike Braun over Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-IN), according to a poll released on Tuesday. An Indy Politics & Mason Strategies poll released on Tuesday found that Braun leads Donnelly by four points—47 to 43 percent—with Libertarian Lucy Brenton capturing three percent and seven percent of Hoosiers remain undecided. Josh Kelley, a campaign spokesman for Braun, said in a statement that Braun has the momentum on his side two weeks ahead of the November midterm election. “Mike Braun has all the momentum in this race because Hoosiers are...

    Hoosier businessman and Senate Republican candidate Mike Braun has surged in the Indiana Senate race only two weeks before the November election, according to a poll released on Monday. Sen. Joe Donnelly’s popularity has continued to plummet ever since he decided to vote against Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court. Since the Senate confirmation vote, the incumbent Democrat’s favorability and his polling has bottomed out. According to a recent poll conducted by the Braun campaign from October 14-17, Braun leads Donnelly by 44 to 40 percent, with seven percent backing Lucy Brenton, and five percent of voters remain undecided....
  • In Indiana, U.S. Senate Candidates Compete To Out-Trump Each Other

    The Federalist ^ | October 18, 2018 | John Daniel Davidson
    The Indiana Senate race is one of the closest midterm elections in the country, and like the other close races, it’s been nationalized. Instead of a contest between two distinct candidates from opposing parties, the election has become a referendum of sorts on President Trump’s first two years in office. But this is Indiana, so it’s a strange, non-binary kind of referendum. Trump carried the state by 19 points and remains hugely popular here. Strange as it might be to see a Democrat in 2018 bragging about being aligned with Trump, that’s exactly what Democratic incumbent Sen. Joe Donnelly is...

    Senate Democrats up for reelection this year in deep-red states face a nightmare decision on how to handle Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Vulnerable Democrats are hoping Republicans will force him to withdraw his nomination, allowing them to avoid politically divisive votes. The Democrats in the toughest position are Sens. Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.), Joe Donnelly (Ind.) and Joe Manchin (W.Va.). Heitkamp and Manchin are undecided, and both are seeking another six-year term in states that Trump won by double digits in 2016. Donnelly is in much the same boat but said on Friday that he would vote ‘no’ on Kavanaugh....

    As the Senate Judicial Committee gathered to vote Friday afternoon to move Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination for a vote in the Senate, word trickled out that Democrat Senator Joe Donnelly of Indiana was a no vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination. Donnelly is in a tough re-election race back home and Republicans hope to separate him from the herd of Democrats in lock-step opposition Judge Kavanaugh. As we all know now, Senator Jeff Flake decided to lob a last-minute bomb into the committee’s proceedings by holding his yes vote hostage to a demand that the FBI investigate Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations. He...

    (CNN) - Republican congressional candidate Tim Donnelly of California called then-President Barack Obama a secret Muslim and terrorist sympathizer on his old radio program, a CNN KFile review has found. Donnelly also said that Loretta Lynch was nominated by Obama for attorney general either because of her "skin color" or her "anti-American" attitude and endorsed a conspiracy theory the death of Freddie Gray was a false flag by the Obama administration and their allies to impose martial law. Donnelly, a former state assemblyman, is challenging incumbent Republican Rep. Paul Cook in California's 8th District, which runs along the eastern border...

    ndiana Democratic Sen. Joe Donnelly said he would okay billions for President Donald Trump’s border wall in a break with his party’s stance on immigration. His statement comes as Donnelly is fighting to maintain his seat in a state that Trump won in 2016 by almost 20 points, according to Politico Wednesday. “I’m fine with providing [Trump] some more. I actually voted for border wall funding three different times,” Donnelly told Politico. “I’m fine with that. I’m fine with $3 [billion], $3.5, $4 or $5.”

    Sen. Joe Donnelly (Ind.) on Tuesday became the second Democrat to publicly announce that they will meet with Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump's latest Supreme Court nominee. Donnelly will meet with Kavanaugh on August 15, according to his office. "Donnelly has consistently said he would carefully review and consider Judge Kavanaugh’s record, meet with him, and follow his confirmation hearing," his office said in a press release. Donnelly's announcement comes after Sen. Joe Manchin (W.Va.) said on Monday that he will meet with Kavanaugh next week, becoming the first known meeting between Trump's nominee and a Democratic senator.

    Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.), one of the most vulnerable Senate Democrats facing reelection in the fall, said he is "fine" with providing more money for the U.S.-Mexico border wall that President Trump has long touted as a staple of his hard-line immigration policies. "I’m fine with providing him some more," Donnelly told Politico. "I actually voted for border wall funding three different time. I’m fine with that." Donnelly also said that he is "fine" with approving up to $5 billion for the wall. Trump in recent weeks has threatened a government shutdown over full funding for his border wall, denouncing...

    Judge Brett Kavanaugh is going to be a weeks-long torment for some on the Hill—and I’m talking about red state Democrats. Senate Republican moderates Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski have been very receptive to Kavanaugh’s nomination, easing pressure from the right that they could sink this SCOTUS nominee if they defect. That could be the case, but for now, pressure has ramped up on Sens. Jon Tester (D-MT), Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), Joe Manchin (D-WV), Joe Donnelly (D-IN), and maybe Bill Nelson (D-FL). Nelson needs help. Republican Gov. Rick Scott is outworking him on Hispanic outreach, and he’s beating Nelson...

    WASHINGTON — Democratic senators running for re-election in red states where President Donald Trump remains popular face an agonizing choice over his coming Supreme Court nominee: Vote to confirm the pick and risk demoralizing Democratic voters ahead of the midterm elections, or stick with the party and possibly sacrifice their own seats — and any chance at a Democratic majority in 2019. The actions of a handful of Senate Democrats struggling to hold their seats in those states — notably Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Joe Donnelly of Indiana and Joe Manchin of West Virginia — will have broad implications...

    . White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Wednesday said Donald Trump plans to target vulnerable red-state Democrats as the midterm election campaign heats up and denied the president is “serially untruthful.” She also disagreed with former Speaker John A. Boehner’s stance that the Republican Party is “taking a nap” that allowed Trump to take control of it, predicted more West Wing staff upheaval and offered a window into efforts to plug a series of leaks during a breakfast event with reporters. Conway insisted the president is busily preparing for his summit with his North Korean counterpart, but struggled to provide...
