FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Visitors to a local Labor Day picnic got a chance to see a U.S. Senate candidate up close and personal.

Democrat Brad Ellsworth from southern Indiana popped into town mid-afternoon to build name recognition in a part of the state where he is less familiar to voters.

He says job creation needs to be a major focus of this race, and he admits that china presents a growing challenge that we must address.

Ellsworth says, “We know they're manipulating their currency. We know they're doing things in their markets through government subsidies that put us at a disadvantage, so when we look at our trade agreements, we have to advantage ourselves, just put us on a level playing ground."

Ellsworth denies that his campaign is running short on money, and that television advertising in the Fort Wayne market will be fired back up in the near future.
