GOP Senate Campaign Committee Sends Mariachi Band to Troll Dem Senator They Dub ‘Mexico Joe’


The National Republican Senatorial Committee released a video today that was meant to knock an incumbent Democratic senator over his business’ history of outsourcing jobs to Mexico in contrast to his previous criticisms over outsourcing.

And how did they go about hitting this lawmaker for his hypocrisy? By sending a mariachi band to one of his campaign events. Yes, you read that right.

The video shows Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-IN) leaving the event and getting on his campaign bus — Donnelly is up for re-election next year — while the band played outside the building the event was held. Meanwhile, we also see voters looking on, with some dancing to the music.

The Republican National Committee currently has a section on its web page devoted to “Mexico Joe,” highlighting his supposed hypocrisy on the subject of outsourcing.

So, how did this video play on social media? Here’s a sample:
