Obama Campaigns for Vulnerable Senate Democrats Ahead of Midterms

HeadlineNov 05, 2018

Meanwhile, President Trump and former President Barack Obama hit the campaign trail throughout the weekend, making a last-minute appeal to voters. Speaking at a campaign rally for Indiana Democratic Senator Joe Donnelly in Gary on Sunday, Obama took aim at Trump’s lies and distortions.

Barack Obama: “Because, unlike some people, I don’t just make stuff up when I’m talking. I’ve got facts to back me up. I believe in fact-based campaigning. I believe in reality-based governance.”

Joe Donnelly is one of the Democrats fighting to retain his seat in the U.S. Senate, along with North Dakota’s Heidi Heitkamp, Florida’s Bill Nelson, Missouri’s Claire McCaskill, New Jersey’s Bob Menendez and Joe Manchin of West Virginia.
