Sen. Donnelly to Dem colleagues: ‘I don’t work for you’

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly of Indiana crossed party lines this week to endorse Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch.

The move has been criticized by Senate Democrats as a separation from the party.

In an interview with 24-Hour News 8’s sister station, WANE,  on Wednesday the moderate Democrat said he works only for Hoosiers.

Donnelly also discussed recent legislation to create a Gulf War Memorial and a day to remember veterans of the Vietnam war, as well as his reaction to Steve Bannon’s removal from the National Security Counsel and the state of the healthcare overhaul plan.
