Democrats Hope for Senate Control Just Took a Huge Blow

Things have gone from bad to worse for embattled Indiana Democrat Senator Joe Donnelly, and as one with a somewhat extensive history with the lawmaker, I can’t say that I’m overly surprised.

For going on two decades now, Donnelly has built a reputation as a man willing to campaign in Indiana as a blue collar Democrat with traditional, conservative Hoosier values. He associated himself with the now-defunct Blue Dog Democrats and most reprehensibly pretended to be pro-life for the sake of winning election.
