With less than three weeks to go till Election Day, Republicans are bringing in their big guns to stump here in Indiana.
Senators John McCain from Arizona and Lindsey Graham from South Carolina were in Indianapolis Wednesday morning talking with small business owners about fiscal issues and the upcoming election.
Richard Mourdock and Democrat Joe Donnelly could determine which party controls the majority in the U.S. Senate.
"It is a choice that the people of Indiana have to make that is part of the larger issue of who sets the agenda for the United States Senate," said the former Republican presidential candidate.
On Wednesday afternoon, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie spoke at a rally on the west side.
"I'm thrilled to be here to support Mike Pence who is a good decent man who will be an outstanding governor for this state. I'm always proud this state that's been governed the way it's been governed by Mitch Daniels who's been a role model for me and a great resource and counselor to me over my first 3 years as governor," said Christie.
Despite all of the Republicans that are stumping here in Indiana, retiring Senator Richard Lugar is not.
Lugar was defeated by Mourdock in the May Primary.
Indiana Democratic Chair Dan Parker said that should tell voters something.
"It’s pretty revealing that the one senator that Richard Mourdock needs is actually not campaigning for him at all and he can bring in every Republican Senator, but the one that matters isn't here," said Parker.
Gov. Christie and Mourdock traveled to Merrillville for a rally there Wednesday night.
