INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -
A conservative group backed by the conservative billionaire Koch brothers is
running Indiana television ads urging Democratic Sen. Joe Donnelly to
support a Republican tax overhaul plan.
The Americans for
Prosperity ads started airing Friday, with similar ads targeting Democratic
senators in Wisconsin and Missouri. Group spokesman Lorenz Isidro says it is
spending $1.9 million over three weeks in Indiana.
The group says
Donnelly should “not get in the way” of the Republican plan that would cut
corporate and personal tax rates and eliminate unspecified loopholes.
Trump and Vice President Mike Pence have been courting support from
Donnelly, who is up for re-election next year.
says he’ll “support tax legislation that’s good for Hoosiers” but needs to
see its details before deciding.
