Braun campaign hits Donnelly hard after announcing his ‘no’ vote on Kavanaugh nomination

Last Friday, Democrat Joe Donnelly announced he would be voting “no” on Kavanaugh’s nomination. In his statement, Donnelly said Dr. Ford’s allegations against Kavanaugh were serious enough that they merited an FBI investigation.

Well, Donnelly and the rest of the Democrats got exactly what they wanted. However, since stating the he would be voting against Kavanaugh, Donnelly hasn’t been real vocal about Kavanaugh.  In fact, on his official Senate Twitter account, Donnelly has displayed or at least tried to display bipartisanship in a couple tweets since putting out last Friday’s statement.

There is nowdoubt Donnelly has backed himself into a corner. If the FBI investigation turns up nothing new on Kavanaugh, Donnelly has to vote for him, right? If he doesn’t vote for him and the FBI investigation turns up nothing then Donnelly’s statement was a complete farce.

He’s also up for re-election and very smartly, his opponent, Republican Mike Braun’s campaign is making an issue of this silence from Donnelly.
