On Thursday, Donnelly’s campaign for U.S. Senate responded to Mourdock’s effort to label his lawsuit to liquidate Chrysler ending more than 100,000 Hoosier jobs as anything other than a partisan power grab.
“Richard Mourdock has stooped to a new low: lying about the fact that he sued to receive less money for Hoosier police officers and teachers than he would have received in settlement,” said Elizabeth Shappell, communications director. “Richard Mourdock pursued the lawsuit against Chrysler to increase his own TEA Party credentials, not because he had Indiana’s best interests in mind. He spent over $2 million of our taxpayer funds on New York lawyers and a lawsuit that lost at every level to try to kill over 100,000 Hoosier jobs, all the while knowing that it was a financial loser even if he succeeded. The only candidate in this race who stood up for and will continue to fight for Indiana workers is Joe Donnelly.”
National media attention was also on Friday’s rally as the outcome of the Donnelly and Mourdock race could determine who holds the Senate majority.
Early voting is already underway prior to Election Day, Nov. 6, and the countdown clock has begun.
