The Body Shop

October 25, 2010 by staff 

The Body Shop, Dan Noonkester voted for Rep. Joe Donnelly in the previous election and said he does not usually stick with the candidates of one party or another.

But this fall, the owner of Dan’s Body Shop in Delphi supports many Republicans, including GOP challenger Donnelly to the U.S. House District 2 race – Jackie Walorski.

“The administration we have just not doing the job the American people need,” said Noonkester. “I run an independent body shop, and we all feel the crisis as everyone else. The economy is just terrible.”

GOP strategists are counting on many more voters like to help Noonkester flip three seats in Indiana to get the 39 they need to take the U.S. House. Republicans are hoping the Walorski aggressive style, combined with the sour mood of the public voice and Donnelly for divisive issues such as health care, Donnelly will hit next month. This is the kind of moderate Democrat that Republicans need to fight to regain the House.

However, handicappers as the least likely to change classify the north central 2nd district. Unlike the seats in the House two southern Indiana that are also involved, the 2nd District voted for Barack Obama two years ago. But she also voted for George W. Bush twice.

And the last four elections, Donnelly has won twice and former Rep. Chris Chocola GOP has won twice.

In the Lafayette area, the 2nd District includes Carroll County and parts of White County.

“It’s a question of conservative Democrats,” said David Wasserman, whoanlyzes House races for the nonpartisan Cook Political Report. “Perhaps Donnelly convince enough socially conservative Democrats to stay with him, even after voting for health? ”

Jerry Hunt has known Donnelly for years as another member of the Rotary Club of South Gateway and considers him a good guy. He voted twice for Donnelly, but fell when the Granger Democrat supported the bill to overhaul health care in March.

Hunt, a financial adviser, said the investment firm he worked for the employees said that health care premiums are rising next year because insurance companies are passing on their additional costs of the review.
