Biden, Pence rally in Indiana for Senate candidates

HAMMOND, Ind. — Two vice presidents campaigned across the Hoosier state Friday for the candidates in Indiana’s heated U.S. Senate race.

It was the Joe and Joe show in Hammond.

Former Vice President Joe Biden shared the stage with Democratic incumbent U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly.

Both urged the crowd to vote early because they believe there’s a lot at stake in the upcoming midterms.

“I’m running for Senate because everybody counts, every Hoosier counts, every Hoosier is entitled to decent healthcare and every American is entitled to decent healthcare,” said Sen. Donnelly.

Meanwhile, sitting Vice President Mike Pence was three hours south of the Democrats’ event in Indianapolis.

He returned home to deliver the keynote address at a GOP fall fundraiser dinner.

Vice President Pence also rallied for Donnelly’s opponent next month, Republican U.S. Senate nominee Mike Braun.

Back in Hammond, Pence’s predecessor took aim at the current administration.

“Folks, this is not who we are,” said former Vice President Joe Biden. “And here’s the deal: our kids are listening, our children are watching and our silence is complicity.”
