U.S. Rep. Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., whose district encompasses a portion of northern Indiana and who has championed the RV industry, is seeking a seat in the U.S. Senate.

An official announcement that he is running for the spot currently held by Republican Richard Lugar  is expected today (May 9), but his campaign website already has a video outlining his reasons for seeking the Senate seat.

His Facebook page also states Donnelly is currently running for U.S. Senate.

That page also includes the following statement:

“I believe Indiana needs a Senator whose priorities are, day-in and day-out: jobs, the economy, and standing up for working- and middle-class families. That’s why I’m running for U.S. Senate.”

Donnelly is the only Democrat to enter the race at this point.

Lugar is facing a challenge in the Republican Primary from State Treasurer Richard Mourdock.
