Down to the Wire

We’re in high gear as we make our final push for the May 3 primary. Recently, we’ve been in Evansville to greet voters with former President Bill Clinton at the Penny Lane Coffeehouse and to meet new friends at a campaign reception hosted by Bill and Mary Bennett.

We also were in Jasper with the Southwest Indiana Rural Letter Carriers Association and at the 50th Anniversary celebration of the TRI-CAP Community Action Agency, highlighted by the inspirational keynote speaker Sister Simone Campbell.

In Terre Haute, we spoke with early voters at the Otter Creek voting center and joined the West Terre Haute and Sugar Creek Democrat Clubs for a delicious dinner. This afternoon, we’ll be at a pre-primary rally in Terre Haute hosted by the Vigo County Democratic Central Committee, and we’ll be speaking with voters in both Terre Haute and Evansville over the weekend.

We’re getting a great response from the voters we meet, and our campaign mail and radio are allowing us to reach many more voters with our ideas to make sure all Americans have a real opportunity to succeed.

Of course, making sure we connect with all voters requires substantial resources. As we enter the final stretch of our primary race, please chip in so we can give this our best shot. Whether you give $5 or $500, your support now will do much to help us succeed on May 3. Please donate now.

We also can take a check made out to "Orentlicher for Congress" and mailed to P.O. Box 3053, Terre Haute, IN 47803. Thank you very much for your consideration.

Please do not hesitate to let me know of ideas you have to improve public policy. You can reach me at
