Senate Leadership Fund launched a digital ad that accuses Sen. Joe Donnelly (D) "of outsourcing jobs to Mexico." SLF "declined to disclose how much it was spending but said the spot was aimed at 'key voters.' The ad, part of a long-running attack on Donnelly, refers to him as 'Mexico Joe' and employs stereotype imaging and music — a cartoon sombrero and clip of a mariachi band — to paint Donnelly as someone who chose shipping jobs to Mexico for profit over hiring American workers."

WEIGHING IN. Rep. Todd Rokita (R-04) called for building a wall Monday, in the wake of the death Sunday of Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson.

Rokita issued the statement after it was reported that Jackson was killed by a man accused of driving drunk who police said was in the country illegally.

Rokita: “We must do more to get these dangerous illegal immigrant criminals off of our streets, and guarantee this never happens again by building a wall, ending sanctuary cities, and stopping illegal immigration once and for all." (release)

Rep. Luke Messer (R-06) and former state Rep. Mike Braun (R) are also running to take on Donnelly.
