Former President Barack Obama urged Hoosiers to vote for incumbent U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) in what he calls “the most important election of our lifetimes.”

Obama rallied with Hoosier Democrats Sunday in Gary.

The former president told the crowd of about 7,000 that America is at a crossroads.

“The health care of millions is on the ballot," Obama says. "Perhaps most importantly, the character of our country is on the ballot.”

Obama says he respects Donnelly – even if they didn’t always agree.

“He always was focused on what’s the best thing for the Hoosiers that he served," Obama says. "And he was honest and he was direct.”

Like Obama, Donnelly urged Hoosiers to vote in what he calls “a very close election.”

“And every vote counts," Donnelly says. "Your vote is your voice.”

Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 6.
