Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Joe Donnelly says he’s ready to debate Republican Richard Mourdock and defend his record and votes in Congress.
Indy Politics spoke with Donnelly on Saturday at the Circle City Classic parade.
He says Republicans who talk about his possible vote for Harry Reid as Senate Majority Leader are focused too much on Washington, D.C. and not place like Washington, Indiana.
Donnelly also defended his vote for the President’s health care plan and pushed back against allegations that he voted to cut more than $700 billion from Medicare.
You can hear Donnelly’s comments below. They run approximately 7 minutes.
The debates are scheduled for Monday, October 15 in Indianapolis at WFYI-TV and Tuesday, October 23 in New Albany.
The two will be joined by Libertarian Andy Horning.
