The race for U.S. Senate in Indiana has gotten national media attention, but what exactly do the candidates have to offer Hoosiers?
The candidates from all three parties focused on job growth. Libertarian Andrew Horning says he should be the choice for U.S. Senate because he is the only stand out. Horning says his opponents are dug into the party system and he hopes voters consider an independent voice when they vote on November 6th.
Republican Richard Mourdock focused on some of the national aspects of what he thinks could lead to more job creation, saying that he wants to be the 51st vote against "Obamacare" in the Senate and touted his track record of fiscal management as Indiana's State Treasurer and as a businessman.
Meanwhile, democrat Joe Donnelly talked about what he would like to do for veterans and for energy policy that could serve those who have served us, and create jobs by harnessing Indiana's natural resources for energy.
