Rep. Joe Donnelly (D-IN02) visited Indianapolis Monday to talk about the future of manufacturing in Indiana. Speculation has him coming here for another reason.

Donnelly held a manufacturing summit at Ivy Tech in Indianapolis. Cummins, Chrysler, Brevini Wind USA are just some of the participants. Donnelly says he wants to take back any information gathered Monday to his district. But he admits he is in the middle of a job decision himself.

“I love the job I have but folks have asked me to take a look at governor or senator and I am doing that,” said Donnelly. Donnelly said the factors in his decision will include questions like “How can I help the people of the district I represent the best, and how can I help the state the best? So that is the decision-making process I am going through.”

Donnelly said he expects to make a decision within the next month.

Donnelly could be considering a run for Senate. Former Indiana House Speaker John Gregg has said he’s giving “serious thought” to running for governor next year.
