Indiana Senator Joe Donnelly recently released an ad blasting what he describes as the radical left, while also voicing support for a wall on the southern border.
The ad — titled Peace Through Strength — attacks ideas and stances supported by many Democrats and socialists. That includes universal health care and slashing defense spending.
A campaign official said the ad shows Senator Donnelly isn’t beholden to the extreme of either party.
The Democrat incumbent is in a reelection battle with Republican Mike Braun, who has said he will support and push the president’s agenda if elected to the upper chamber.
Many see the ad as pandering after the senator refused to support now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
