PLYMOUTH — Running for political office can be a long lonely road but Senate hopeful Joe Donnelly has found a traveling friend for the past few days in former Indiana Senator and Governor Evan Bayh.
Friends for the past 26 years - the two have embarked on a two day, five community trip down main street Indiana. The tour began with stops in Indianapolis, Speedway and Terre Haute yesterday and between trips to Fort Wayne and East Chicago the pair stopped for lunch in Plymouth at Opie's Deli.
"It's really good to be home," said Donnelly with a smile. "I'll be sleeping in my own bed tonight that's a real bonus."
Bayh also had some fond memories.
"I'm thrilled to be back in Plymouth. I spent four of the best summers of my life here at the Culver Academy," said Bayh. "My parents used to bring me to Plymouth to go bowling and we always ate at the A&W Root Beer stand."
Donnelly spoke briefly with the press before having lunch with local supporters voicing a message of unity and job creation.
"Opie's is a reflection of what is great about this country," said Donnelly. "A small hometown business that through hard work and determination has been successful. We want to give these businesses the tools they need to succeed. We've always been about creating jobs and that's not about partisan politics and division, it's about being Americans."
Bayh had a similar message.
"Middle class families are facing some real challenges," he said. "All we see in Congress is fighting. We have to work together to solve our problems. We need solutions and not ideology."

Donnelly's sheep's clothing

Don't believe what Joe says. He will talk it up when he knows he's in a predominantly conservative area but, is a liberal. I haven't trusted him ever since he voted for Obamacare, when just days before he told me to my face he would not vote for it. He didn't even READ THE BILL! He unwittingly gave the Executive Branch MORE POWER to essentially 'legislate' from the desk by Executive Order--moreso than what was legally possible prior to this--by, at the President's discretion, using the various departments under his control...to name a few: DHS, HHS, EPA, FDA, DOE (education and energy). Unity? Well, Joe voted to have Nancy Pelosi be speaker of the house and votes party-line 80% of the time. Sounds pretty one-sided to me! Richard Mourdock is a good, honest family-man and has done great things for Indiana! Don't let Joe fool you when he talks about co-sponsoring bills for the Veterans and farmers...he, along with a hundred or so others, co-sponsored those bills so, it's not like HE came up with them and initiated them; he just went along for the ride. Donnelly has done wrong...he doesn't read the bills before voting on them and lies about how he will vote on them to your face!
