Senator Joe Donelly

Last night Indiana reversed it’s presidential party pick from 2008, with 54 percent of Hoosiers voting for republican Mitt Romney to 43 percent voting for election victor President Barack Obama. However, Indiana will be sending a democrat to the senate, in a seat that was held by republican Richard Lugar for 36 years, splitting the state’s representation in the senate and helping the senate to maintain democratic control nationwide. In a race that attracted national headlines, Indiana will be sending Democrat Joe Donnelly to join Republican Dan Coats in congress next year. After his defeat of Republican Richard Mourdock last night, Donnelly took time to speak with the media about his win, including WFHB correspondent Joe Crawford. We bring you his words here, in a WFHB feature report.
