“I’ve always fought, like my colleagues, to protect American workers and to keep our jobs here,” Donnelly told reporters.
Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-IN) told reporters that he has always fought to keep jobs here in America. Earlier this year it was reported that Donnelly profited when his family’s business outsourced jobs to Mexico.
“My home state of Indiana has seen a number of American jobs shipped to foreign countries,” Donnelly told reporters. “I’ve always fought, like my colleagues, to protect American workers and to keep our jobs here.”
Donnelly, who is up for re-election in 2018, has earned the nickname ‘Mexico Joe’ from Republicans because a business linked to his family, Stewart Superior Corp, outsourced manufacturing jobs to Mexico.
According to a May 2017 financial disclosure form, Donnelly owns $50,000 in Stewart Superior Corp. stock, which yielded Donnelly between $15,001 and $50,000 of income in 2016.
“Federal contracts should go to those companies that invest here, invest in America. So when calculations are made as to how the contract is going to be given, obviously it’s critical that quality be included, that cost be included,” Donnelly said, before adding that another calculation should be whether a company shipped jobs overseas.
