Respected Democrat Quits Donnelly Campaign Over Planned Parenthood Vote

On Monday, Indiana Senator Joe Donnelly voted with 50 Republicans and one other Democrat to defund Planned Parenthood.

That was enough for former Lieutenant Governor, Kathy Davis.  The straight shooting and universally-respected Democrat told the Indianapolis Star that she resigned her position as Donnelly's campaign treasurer as a direct result of Donnelly's vote on Monday.  She had been with the campaign for four years.

Davis is one of the smartest people I've ever met, and she's not one that's generally known for making a quick decision.  Davis's exit is a huge loss to the Donnelly campaign, and it signifies the depth of disappointment some Democrats have in the Senator's vote.

The only other Democrat to vote for the defunding of Planned Parenthood was West Virginia's Joe Manchin.  Other Democrats were able to ultimately block the effort to defund.
