Mike Braun Wins Indiana's Republican Senate Primary

Mike Braun a candidate for the GOP nomination to represent Indiana in the U.S. Senate at the last GOP debate before the May 8 primary

Joe Donnelly (D-IN) in November's general election.

"Tonight, Hoosiers spoke loud and clear - they want a conservative outsider representing them in the U.S. Senate and I am grateful to have their support", Mr. Braun said after winning the in primary.

In his victory speech, Braun said he's hoping both men will support him in moving forward, saying all three of them have the same goal: to defeat incumbent Joe Donnelly.

On behalf of the Indiana Republican Party, I want to congratulate our Republican nominee and next U.S. Senator - Mike Braun! Third District Rep. Jim Banks (R), though unopposed, officially earned the nomination to keep his congressional seat Tuesday night. Braun will face 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.

Election night in the Buckeye State's closely watched gubernatorial primaries was nearly over before it began, as Democrat Richard Cordray and Republican Mike DeWine immediately built huge leads based on early voting.

Errol Spears, a 75-year-old retired schoolteacher from Fishers, said he voted for Braun in part because of his business background and for the tone of his campaign.

With few major policy differences, the candidates ran bitter campaigns by arguing who's the strongest Trump supporter.

A wealthy businessman who borrowed President Trump's outsider message and bear-hugged the president has won the three-way primary to face Sen.

It will be interesting to see a unified Korea team take on neighbours Japan, in a high-intensity semifinal. Ryu said there was no discussion on a possible joint team prior to the world championships.

Braun is a businessman and former state representative.

"When it comes to Luke Messer and Todd Rokita, it was a hard decision for me, because we were all good conservatives and sometimes it gets a little hard to differentiate the process of doing it, it gets intense, it gets harsh, but I hope they will join me just like I would with them", said Braun. He defeated a Republican who drew national rebuke for comments made about pregnancy that resulted from rape.

Democrats have almost two-thirds more candidates seeking legislative nominations this year than they did in the last midterm election four years ago.

"I've never been afraid of a fight", Donnelly said. He also has a master's degree in economics from the Harvard Business School before serving three years in the Indiana House of Representatives from 2013 to 2017.

Titled "Can't Trust Mike Braun", the ad repackages blistering criticisms from GOP Reps.

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

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

In the end, the GOP race was not as close as expected.

One of the most important issues to Braun, and the first issue listed on Braun's campaign website, is protecting the Second Amendment.
