Obama stumps for senator who supports Trump’s wall

In a race that the Cook Political Report currently considers a tossup, former President Barack Obama urged Hoosiers not to fall for the GOP’s attempts to distract from issues, and backed a Democratic candidate who has sometimes strayed from party lines.

Speaking at a rally in Indiana for Sen. Joe Donnelly, who is in a highly competitive race with Republican challenger Mike Braun, Obama praised the Democrat for his honestly.

“Joe Donnelly and I didn’t agree all the time, but Joe always let me know where he stood and I knew what he believed in and that he was always focused on what’s the best thing for the Hoosiers that he served. And he was honest and he was direct, so you can count on that. That’s what you want. You don’t just want a yes man all the time,” Obama told the crowd.

Braun, a steadfast Trump supporter, has campaigned as a businessman and outsider who is tired of career politicians. Braun has criticized Donnelly for backing Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, voting against the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh and supporting the Iran-nuclear deal. Read more
