At Sen. Joe Don­nelly’s (D) town hall Sunday, “ref­er­ences to sup­port­ing Medi­care, the Af­ford­able Care Act, Planned Par­ent­hood and pub­lic schools drew en­thu­si­ast­ic ap­plause from the audi­ence; a ques­tion about wheth­er Don­nelly would ‘do your duty and vote for (Su­preme Court Justice nom­in­ee Neil) Gor­such’ promp­ted a flurry of boos.”

“Don­nelly did not com­mit to how he would vote ahead of the [Gor­such] con­firm­a­tion hear­ings that start Monday, not­ing “I want to see what he has to say.” (Muncie Star Press)

GOP SIDE. Fresh­man Rep. Jim Banks (R-03) said he is not think­ing about a bid against Don­nelly but did not rule it out com­pletely. “He says he ex­pects to talk with his fam­ily about 2018 after every­one’s had a few months to ad­just to his com­mute back and forth to Wash­ing­ton.” (WIBC)
