Second District Representative, Joe Donnelly, made it official yesterday. In a video announcement, Donnelly said he wanted to take the fight for American jobs to the U.S. Senate.

The Democrat narrowly defeated challenger Jackie Walorski in the 2010 general election, but since then the District has become much more Republican with redistricting.

Senator Richard Lugar and his challenger in the 2012 Republican Primary, State Treasurer Richard Mourdock, would face Donnelly if he is successful for the Democrat nomination.
