Leading Political Journal Likes Donnelly's Chance

The Hill, Washington's insider political journal, says it has become more likely that the US Senate will remain Democratic largely because of the defeat of Richard Lugar and Joe Donnelly's strength against Richard Mourdock: "While the state remains heavily Republican-leaning, Donnelly has some centrist credentials and held onto his House district in the 2010 Republican wave year. Plus, Mourdock has taken enough hard-right positions that he’s vulnerable to Democratic attacks. The Hill moves this race to a 'toss-up.'"

Indiana Democrats wasted no time in launching an ad featuring Mourdock's extremist agenda.
