In a fairly softball interview from Chris Matthews on MSNBC's Hardball, Joe Donnelly was pitch perfect in his rhetoric and his charges against his Republican opponent Richard Mourdock.
He didn't even stumble when Matthews made a big stretch to compare Mourdock to Joe McCarthy. Donnelly is proving to be more than skilled as a candidate and is really hard to knock off message. This strong candidate coupled with a strong Libertarian like Andy Horning in this race is not good news for Mourdock.
You know, I'm not there on all of Donnelly's views, but he's running a nearly perfect campaign thus far. That's what it's going to take to win in November.
Here's the interview...and someone needs to tell Matthews that Richard Lugar's name is pronounced "Lew-gerr" not "Lew-garr".
