    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Records show an investigation into allegations that Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill drunkenly groped four women at a party cost taxpayers at least $26,300. Documents obtained by The Indianapolis Star through open records requests detail expenses by special prosecutor Daniel Sigler, the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department and the Indiana Inspector General's office. Sigler's bill totaled $5,217 and IMPD paid an estimated $3,226. But $17,861 of the costs came from the Inspector General's office, which opened its inquiry after requests by Gov. Eric Holcomb and legislative leadership.

    Democrat J.D. Ford pulled off a big upset Tuesday, unseating state Sen. Mike Delph, a Republican who has served the district since 2005. With two-thirds of precincts reporting, Ford held a 57 percent to 43 percent lead over Delph. “I wanted District 29 to be heard and with our win tonight, they will be,” Ford told fellow Democratic supporters Tuesday night. “Now you have a voice in the Indiana General Assembly.” Ford is thought to be Indiana’s first openly gay state lawmaker. “Ladies and gentleman, we just made history and no one can take that from us,” Ford said.

    Indiana Democrat Joe Donnelly lost his Senate seat on Tuesday in a hard-fought race against Republican businessman Mike Braun. Donnelly, who took the seat in 2012, lost the first Democratic Senate seat of the midterm election in a state President Trump won by 19 points in 2016. Braun cast himself as an outsider and a staunch supporter of Trump, while claiming Donnelly was out of line with Indiana values by supporting abortion rights and other issues.

    In the Army they call them decision points, key moments in time and space where your choice determines whether you achieve the thrill of victory or the agony of defeat, in this case defeat by a bunch of vicious socialist-wannabes who long for the chance to crush you like one of the grapes that goes into Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit’s Trader Joe’s house brand Chardonnay. Today, Election Day, is one of those decision points, and what we do today will determine our destiny as a nation. So, no biggie – it’s only our country’s future. If we don’t win,...

    President Trump condemned the legacy of former President Barack Obama Friday night with one withering blast at a campaign rally in Indiana. Campaigning for Republican Senate candidate Mike Braun, Mr. Trump noted that Mr. Obama will be stumping in the state this weekend for incumbent Democratic Sen. Joe Donnelly. “It’s no surprise that Joe Donnelly is holding a rally this weekend with Barack H. Obama,” Mr. Trump said. Then he let loose on his predecessor, who has criticized Mr. Trump as dishonest. “We don’t want to go back to the Obama days of low wages, high unemployment, rising crime, open...

    WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump is headed back out on the campaign trail with rallies Friday in West Virginia and Indiana. In Indiana, he'll have help from Hall of Fame basketball coach Bob Knight, who coached the Indiana University Hoosiers. Trump teased Knight's appearance in a tweet, saying: "Don't tell anyone (big secret), but I will be bringing Coach Bobby Knight to Indiana. He's been a supporter right from the beginning of the Greatest Political Movement in American History!" Trump, Knight and Vice President Mike Pence will be stumping Friday for Republican Mike Braun, who is running against Sen. Joe...

    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...

    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.

    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....
