INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Newly elected U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly will serve on the Senate’s agriculture and military panels.

Donnelly announced Wednesday he will serve on the Agriculture and Armed Service committees in addition to the Senate Aging Committee. He says the assignments will help him “serve the diverse needs of Hoosiers.”

Donnelly beat Republican Richard Mourdock last month for the seat U.S. Sen. Richard Lugar held for the last 36 years. Donnelly is finishing up his third term in the House, where he served on the Veterans’ Affairs and Financial Services committees while representing northern Indiana.
