Donnelly, Horning to speak to service club

Anthony Wayne Rotary has announced that two of the three candidates for a U.S. Senate seat from Indiana will speak to the group at separate meetings.

Rep. Joe Donnelly, D-2nd, will speak to the service club Oct. 24, and Libertarian candidate Andrew Horning will speak Oct. 31. Each meeting will start at 12:15 p.m. at Don Hall's Guesthouse, 1313 W. Washington Center Road.

Anthony Wayne Rotary said state Treasurer Richard Mourdock, the Republican candidate for Senate, is unavailable to speak to the club.

Visitors are welcome at meetings if they are with members, the club said. Anthony Wayne Rotary members work "to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace and eradicate polio," according to a news release.

Independent polls indicate Mourdock and Donnelly are in a neck-and-neck race to replace Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind. Mourdock defeated Lugar in the Republican primary election.
