Donnelly Bus Trip Headed to D.C.

Dozens of Joe Donnelly supporters hopped on a bus Tuesday morning.

Their destination: the nation's capital.

The group is headed to Washington D.C. where Donnelly and the rest of the 110th congress will be sworn in Thursday.

The bus made stops in Mishawaka, Plymouth, Rochester and Kokomo to pick people up and take them to the nation's capital.

Donnelly says it is an honor to be sworn in this week.

He is also excited about representing the people of the 2nd-district and can't wait to get started.

Congressman Joe Donnelly (D.) stated, "But we're going to get right to work and try to do the things that we promised to the people of Indiana during the campaign."

Democrats are preparing to pass a half-dozen top legislative priorities before the President's State of the Union address.

That is tentatively scheduled for three weeks from Tuesday.

The priorities include raising the minimum wage, reducing the cost of student loans, and permitting the government to negotiate for lower Medicare drug prices.
