Fort Wayne, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - The Indiana Democratic Candidate for U.S. Senate, Joe Donnelly was touting “enough with the extremism and gridlocks in Washington” Thursday morning as he and former-Senator Evan Bayh stopped by Fort Wayne's "Paint the Town Graphics".

The visit was part of the duo's "Main Street Tour," which allows local business owners to talk about the needs of middle class workers.

Donnelly hopes that Bayh will help draw some of former-Senator Richard Lugar's supporters away from Republican Candidate Richard Mourdock.

Donnelly said, “Senator Bayh and Senator Lugar were always such a great example of the Hoosier way, which is common sense, which is working together, focusing on what's best for our country, and at the end of the day, knowing that you tried to make our country stronger, our state stronger, and it's by working with other folks."

In May, Mourdock told CNN he hopes "bipartisanship becomes Democrats joining Republicans to roll back the size of government."
