Dem Senator Up for Re-Election Unrecognizable to Even CNN

While broadcasting a segement on a banking regulation bill on Wednesday, CNN failed to correctly identify Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-IN).

Using a graphic listing the Democrats that voted for the bill, a picture acommpanied the name of each senator and the state they represent.

Every photograph was correct except for one:

CNN instead selected Roll Call reporter John Donnelly to represent the Indiana senator.

The Democrat is up for re-election in 2018 and may want to increase his name I.D., at least among CNN producers. If professionals can’t recognize Donnelly, national Republicans will have a much easier time branding him “Mexico Joe.”
