Senate candidates make Michiana stops during final stretch

Posted:

If you've watched any TV lately, you've no doubt seen the attack ads between Senate Candidates Joe Donnelly and Richard Mourdock.  

There's money being spent putting messages in your mailbox too.  The Democratic Super Pac American Bridge spent $30,000 on a talking mailer going after Mourdock over his comments about pregnancies resulting from rape. 

Mourdock's camp has accused Democrats of being "sleazy" when talking about the comments. 

Thursday both candidates were in Michiana doing the talking for themselves.  "If people like the last four years and the results, which is to say miserably high unemployment numbers, incredibly low economic growth, if they like those things then they ought to vote for Barack Obama and Joe Donnelly,"  Mourdock said. 

"I think it's a simple question.  Who will fight for you and your family?  Who is going there to play politics?  That's Richard Mourdock.  Who is going there to stand up for you and your family? That's me," Donnelly said. 

The campaigns are also offering up competing polls.  Donnelly's campaign says he has a "commanding lead."  Their internal poll shows Donnelly leading Mourdock 43% to 36%.

Mourdock's camp is out with a poll showing Mourdock leading Donnelly 45% to 44%.  Time is ticking before Election Day, and it's clear both candidates will spend most of the remaining time on the campaign trail.

"We're very optimistic.  Polling data is looking very optimistic for us," Mourdock said Thursday.  "You run all the way to the finish line.  We're not going to stop."

"It's just a chance to see voters all over the state, look them in the eye, answer their questions.  Because here's what I know, there's a lot more wisdom that comes from Indiana than from Washington,"  Donnelly said.
