A day after it was revealed he owned stock in a company that outsources jobs to Mexico, Senator Joe Donnelly has responded.

The Associated Press is reporting the outspoken outsourcing critic will sell his stock in Stewart Superior Corporation.

The company ships raw material to a Mexico factory, then sends the final product to California.

Donnelly released a statement Thursday, admitting it’s his brother’s company and claiming that he hasn’t had a role in the company for over a decade. He commended the company for creating jobs in LaPorte and that his stance on outsourcing hasn’t changed.

The news comes as the 2018 election cycle is set to get moving. Experts believe the Democratic Senator will be in a tough fight to keep his U.S. Senate seat next year.

  1. This would be more meaningful if he had done the right thing before he was caught. As it is, this is just damage control.

  2. Yeah, NY Joe is not really interested in doing the right thing…unless he can’t get away with doing what he wanted to do.
