Indiana's U.S. Senate race is on the minds of many Hoosiers going into Election Day. This race could help decide which party controls the U.S. Senate.
“Glad to be at the end of the road,” said Mourdock at a campaign stop in Indianapolis Monday. “You know we started 633 days ago.”
Mourdock is doing some last minute hand shaking in Indianapolis in his run for the U.S. Senate. The Republican made this tight race against Democrat Donnelly even tighter when, in a recent debate, he suggested that a child conceived in rape was part of God's plan. But, Mourdock is keeping his focus on the economy and health care.
“We're thrilled that the message of getting this economy turning around and being the 51st vote on repealing Obama Care,” said Mourdock. “That's the message we've been carrying for months and months and I think people are responding to that message.”
Mourdock even brought in the Republican muscle of Senator Dan Coats for the stretch run. Senator Coats said this is about the GOP gaining control of the senate.
“I want Richard to join me so we can have 51 senators to support our new president Mitt Romney,” said Senator Coats.
Democratic senate candidate Donnelly was pumping up his supporters in Fishers Monday.
“Thank you for the countless hours and all the doors you've knocked on,” Donnelly said.
Donnelly had the help of former Senator Evan Bayh. Their message was that Donnelly will lead Indiana in the spirit of bipartisanship with what they call Hoosier Common Sense.
“So that's what I want to do, is just go there not worry about Democrat or Republican but worry about Indiana,” said Donnelly.
“Can I say one other thing,” said Bayh. “Hoosiers are going to send a good message tomorrow. One of the reasons Senator Lugar lost his primary was that he was attacked for working with people across the aisle.
“I think Hoosiers are going to send the message that we want people to work together to move the state and country forward.”
