  Hoosiers can expect to see more deer on and around roadways for the next few weeks. State Police are advising drivers to stay alert to avoid collisions.

Indiana State Police Sgt. Curt Durnil says deer collisions happen more frequently this time of year because their populations are up due to migration and mating patterns.

Durnil says the phenomenon isn’t restricted to rural areas, and drivers should look out for deer even while driving down interstates or through cities.

Oct 13, 2018

U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) sought a big endorsement Friday night, having former Vice President Joe Biden stump for him Hammond. Donnelly is in a tight race with Republican challenger Mike Braun.

As former Vice President Joe Biden campaigned for U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) in northwest Indiana Friday, current Vice President – and former Governor – Mike Pence told a room full of Republicans in Indianapolis why they should elect Donnelly’s GOP opponent Mike Braun. 

Pence was the keynote speaker at the state GOP fall fundraising dinner.

Much of Pence’s speech focused on the Trump administration and its efforts. He also made sure to note his predecessor’s trip to Indiana to stump for Donnelly.
