Indiana Voters Pick Republican Mike Braun To Take On Sen. Joe Donnelly

Indiana Voters Pick Republican Mike Braun To Take On Sen. Joe Donnelly

Mike Braun emerged victorious in the GOP Senate primary in IN, triumphing over two members of Congress in a bitter contest that turned into a wrestling match over which of them was most committed to President Trump.

A poll taken last month showed Braun in the lead, but many of those surveyed were undecided.

The primary between Braun and his fellow contenders, sitting Congressmen Luke Messer and Todd Rokita, turned nasty with accusations thrown at all candidates.

With few major policy differences, the candidates ran bitter campaigns by arguing who's the strongest Trump supporter. Obama returned to Elkhart in 2016 to point to economic progress, but Trump carried the county and much of the region overwhelmingly that year.

"We've got people who, more so than I ever expected, people actively concerned about national debt and worldwide trade, large segments of people who are anxious about how divisive we've become", says Beck.

Braun's campaign website bills him as a "conservative businessman", but - as his primary opponents pointed out - he voted with Democrats for more than a decade in state elections.

Rokita donned Trump's signature "Make America Great Again" hat in his ads and campaigned with the slogan "Defeat the Elite".

Republican Mike Braun advances to a November matchup with Democrat Joe Donnelly, who is considered one of the Senate's most vulnerable incumbents. And Messer recently called for Trump to be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for his work in pressuring North Korea to give up its nuclear ambitions.

Braun brushed off attacks about voting in Democratic primaries until 2012, saying he did so to "weigh in" on local races in a blue area and did not vote for Democrats in state or national elections.

2018 election predictions from Trump. Joe Donnelly, D-Indiana, saying Indiana deserves better.

"I go bom-bom-bom-bah-bom-bom", said Trump, mimicking the sound of a phone ringing.

In the limited overs version, Kaul, who has been a stupendous performer at the domestic level, got the nod. However, it is highly unlikely that Nair will get a look-in in the playing XI against Afghanistan .

All of the GOP candidates were the subject of unflattering news stories.

"I think it's really important we put people in who share our values, who are actually going to get in there to turn things around, because it's a mess in Washington", Liz Watson, an in 9th District Democratic primary candidate, said.

Braun spent Tuesday stumping in northern Indianapolis suburbs, stopping at a senior living subdivision before heading to his party, with brother and Fourth District Congressional candidate Steve Braun, in Whitestown.

Trump teased something new on health care soon and touted the repeal of the law's individual mandate a year ago.

Indiana Republican Party Chairman Kyle Hupfer has declared Mike Braun the victor of the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate.

He defeated four others in the 6th District race, including Muncie businessman Jonathan Lamb, who had criticized his opponent for relying on the Pence name.

Braun was elected to the Indiana State House as a Republican in 2014. He lost his left arm during combat in the Vietnam War.

Donnelly is a top target for Republicans looking to take out red-state Democrats in the midterm elections.

Voters in OH also moved a step close to replacing Republican Gov. John Kasich, who is term-limited, and flirting with a primary challenge against Mr. Trump in 2020.

And in Ohio, Rep. Jim Renacci cruised to a victory that sets up a run against incumbent Democratic Sen.
