A U.S. Senate candidate is making a last appeal to voters in what's become one of the most closely-watched races nationwide. Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Joe Donnelly stopped by Evansville's Cross-eyed Cricket for lunch and conversation. Donnelly's visit is part of a stretch of non-stop campaigning across southern Indiana. He focused on his plans to work across the aisle on issues that affect the middle class. The latest poll shows Donnelly with a double-digit lead over Republican opponent Richard Mourdock, who recently came under fire for his comments about rape and abortion. Mourdock has said voters are more concerned with jobs than poll numbers.
