'Just Ask Joe' debuts

The office of Sen. Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., has begun a “Just Ask Joe” constituent video series in which Hoosiers can receive information about federal resources available to them.

The contact information is 317-226-5555, Donnelly.senate.gov, senatordonnelly on Facebook and @sendonnelly on Twitter.

The first video on the senator's website features a testimonial from a South Bend woman who received assistance from Donnelly’s staff in obtaining benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs.

There is a blooper of sorts that was kept in the clip. At one point, Mary Andrews starts to call Donnelly “governor” before catching her mistake and, with a smile, calling him “senator.”
