Indiana Senator Donnelly heads to Texas with Schumer

Two to three times a week Indiana Democratic Sen. Joe Donnelly’s campaign sends out frantic emails about the state of his race.  Generally, these frenzied emails start off quoting some poll showing the race leaning Republican. Continue reading and you soon spot the real reason for the mass mailing, it’s an ask to donate, generously, to the incumbent Democrat’s campaign.

Sure, campaign’s ask for money all the time. They need lots and lots of your money in order to continue…working for you?

But, this past weekend the Indiana Senator, whose campaign openly admits  – several times a week- that the race is leaning Republican, wasn’t in Indiana. Well, was he in Washington D.C.? Nah. But where was he then?

Well, Donnelly was in Texas…raising money...with New York Senator Chuck Schumer.

If you’re wondering what connection Donnelly has to Texas, so are we. Must’ve been that Schumer said “money” and then Donnelly likely sent his RSVP in moments in later.

The optics of this are absolutely terrible. Donnelly likes to position himself as a blue dog, conservative Democrat, but palling around with the liberal Senator from New York, Chuck Schumer is not a good look.

Regardless, Donnelly knows his time in office is coming to a close.

Savor it, Senator!
