The state director for Americans for Prosperity, a conservative group that has spent nearly $31 million trying to sway this year's federal elections, will ride into Fort Wayne on Wednesday to campaign against President Obama and Democratic Senate candidate Joe Donnelly.
A nationwide bus tour targeting "Obama's Failing Agenda" will stop at 8 a.m. in a commercial area at 10346 Dawsons Creek Blvd., Suite E, south of Dupont Road.
Chase Downham, director of the Indiana chapter of Americans for Prosperity, will speak about Obama's policies and tell people how they can become involved with his group.
"President Obama's failed agenda, which as been embraced by Congressman Joe Donnelly, has harmed Hoosiers by increasing our debt and wasting taxpayer dollars," Downham said Tuesday in a statement.
Americans for Prosperity was started by billionaire brothers David and Charles Koch. It advocates for lower taxes and reducing the size of government.
The Center for Responsive Politics, a non-partisan research group, reports that Americans for Prosperity has spent $30.8 million this election cycle in trying to defeat Democratic candidates.
Americans for Prosperity said it is sending three buses to 400 cities in 25 states for grass-roots organizing against Obama. Seven stops in Indiana, including the Fort Wayne visit, are planned on Wednesday and Thursday.
