Clinton calls for cooperation in Indianapolis speech

Donnelly and Gregg get a powerful assist



Joe Donnelly met with media at 9:30 a.m. to preview the Hoosier Common Sense Rally saying early voting numbers have exceeded 2008 levels and he sees that as a good sign. What he says he also sees as positive and what this election is about are the 5,000 workers heading to their jobs at a transmission plant in Kokomo that he says his opponent didn’t support.

Carson added to the discussion saying, “This election is arguably the most important election in your and my lifetime. It’s time for Hoosier common sense. It’s time for Hoosier problem solving. The calculation for us is very simple. American cannot be forgotten. American will not be forgotten. When we work together to ensure that the worst practices on Wall Street never again happen, we all gain from that,”

All eyes appear to be shifting to Indiana after Brian Howey recently reported that Indiana  Republicans remain in danger of losing a Senate seat, as nominee Richard Mourdock trails Democrat Joe Donnelly 40 to 38% in the latest Howey/DePauw Indiana  Battleground Poll. The bipartisan poll was conducted by Republican Christine Matthews of Bellwether Research and Democrat Fred Yang of Garin-Hart-Yang Research Group and was done with DePauw University’s Pulliam Center for Contemporary Media and Brian Howey, publisher of Howey Politics Indiana.

The latest Howey/DePauw Poll shows Pence holding a 13 point lead over  Democrat John Gregg in the race for Indiana governor (47% to 34%), and Republican Mitt Romney up 52% to 40% over Democratic President Barack Obama, who carried Indiana -- which typically votes Republican in presidential races -- in 2008.

The poll also raised eyebrows with Mourdock’s favorable/unfavorable at 26/32%, compared to 24/21% for Donnelly. Another poll is planned this month.

Gregg and Pence will appear on Oct. 17 at Notre Dame University for the second of three debates.
