With Blankenship loss, Republicans look to November in three key Senate races

With Blankenship loss, Republicans look to November in three key Senate races

Joe Donnelly in the November election.

"I really believe if you get 10 to 12 of us in the Senate that have lived our lives first of all in the trenches of conservatism, not through the lens of a politician, I think that's a key difference, you will actually start to see things change", said Braun.

There was a a lot of excitement at Mike Braun's headquarters in Indianapolis on Tuesday night, as supporters were burning the midnight oil mingling and talking to him after this big win in the primary race.

The victor of the race faces incumbent Democratic Sen.

"I don't think that the folks from the 3rd District, the most conservative, most Republican congressional district in the State of in are ready for that kind of politics", Shine said. Joe Manchin, D-W. Va., is vulnerable given that Donald Trump carried the state by 42 points in 2016. His rivals have asked who he voted for in the 2008 Democratic primary race between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, but Braun claims he voted for neither.

Braun acknowledges the race turned "intense" and "harsh", but says it was necessary to differentiate among three conservative candidates. We were watching and we are going to campaign the dickens out of IN'.

In Ohio, businessman Mike Gibbons is squaring off against U.S. Representative Jim Renacci to see who will challenge Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown in November.

Breathing large amounts of sulfur dioxide can result in burning of the nose and throat, and breathing difficulties. Hundreds of people have evacuated from Leilani Estates, a community of about 1,700 people, and Lanipuna Gardens.

More recently, Messer's two decades-old drunk driving convictions have come to the forefront of the race, convictions he didn't disclose when he replaced a state representative who was killed by a drunk driver.

Rokita is now the congressional representative from Indiana's Fourth Congressional District, though he also spent time as the Indiana Deputy Secretary of State and Secretary of State before stepping into his current role. Those attacks will go against the GOP's ideological hits on Donnelly for voting against the GOP's tax cuts and for his family company's ties to Mexico.

Blankenship accuses McConnell of undermining Trump and has run TV ads highlighting McConnell's wife's Taiwanese heritage, drawing widespread condemnation.

The Vice President's brother, Greg Pence, won the GOP primary for Indiana's 6th Congressional District on Tuesday.

According to Politico, Braun's effort was powered by almost $6 million of his own money that he either loaned or gave to his campaign.

In the most competitive House district in Indiana, Democrats got the candidate party leaders wanted in Mel Hall.

The National Republican Senate Committee congratulated Mr. Braun, saying the general election will offer a clear contrast between the two candidates. While Braun has said he is a "lifelong conservative", he has voted in Democratic primaries and CNN reported that Braun was listed in RNC voter data as a "hard Democrat" until at least 2012.
