Mike Braun Wins Indiana's Republican Senate Primary

Mike Braun Wins Indiana's Republican Senate Primary

In Indiana, 500,000 Republicans cast ballots in the Senate primary compared to only 287,325 in the Democratic primary, although Joe Donnelly did run uncontested in it. Joe Donnelly (D-IN) in November's general election.

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.

Business Man Mike Braun has been estimated to conquer sitting congressmen from Indiana's Republican Senate principal. You can say the same about dogs that did not bark in the other three states' primary election results. "There's not much daylight between the candidates". He says the bruising Republican primary, in which Braun and Congressmen Todd Rokita and Luke Messer each campaigned as unswerving backers of President Trump, suggests a misunderstanding of the job they're seeking.

Half of the seats in the 50-member Indiana Senate and all 100 seats in the Indiana House are up this year.

Messer and Rokita both criticized Braun's previous political record, which showed no major donations to Republican political campaigns and a history of voting as a Democrat in local political primaries.

Braun was elected to the Indiana State House in 2014. Donnelly is a lazy legislator who was ranked as the the least effective Democrat in in the U.S. Senate - and that's really saying something. He's anti-abortion and was one of only three Democrats who voted to confirm Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch, the president's pick. So far, Donnelly has largely followed his playbook from 2012, when he ran for the Senate while a contentious primary fight played out on the right.

But he was less optimistic about his party's chances of beating Donnelly. Marco Rubio (R-Fl.) in the Republican presidential primary.

Former Fort Wayne Mayor Paul Helmke wondered before the primary whether the losing candidates' supporters would warm up to the nominee.

CNN projects Congressman Jim Renacci, who had the endorsement of President Trump, will win the GOP primary in OH, setting a fall race with Democratic incumbent Sherrod Brown. "But Trump is the personality that dominates every discussion".

However, devices that are turned off or are not in an LTE coverage area will not receive a notification. In an email to The Canadian Press, Pelmorex issued a statement explaining what happened.

Now, Braun's setting the table for Trump's visit with hefty praise for the president's tax cuts.

The bottom line: Trump's endorsement could give Renacci a big boost Tuesday. Hoosiers across the state have been working long hours - making phone calls, knocking on doors, and working the polls in support of our Republicans candidates throughout the state. On trade policy, Brown is significantly closer to Trump's views than Renacci, a potential problem in a state where the issue is front and center. "When he's in IN he acts like one of us, but in Washington he votes against us, against President Trump and in lockstep with the Democrats".

Two reliably Republican congressional seats are also up for grabs, after the GOP representatives opted to instead jump into the Republican Senate primary.

Braun, a businessman and former state representative, touted his business experience and claimed his two opponents were cardboard cutouts of each other.

The political world was watching to see how Blankenship would fare after launching a series of racial broadsides at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, McConnell's wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, and her parents.

Ex-convict and coal baron Don Blankenship has lost his bid for the Republican Senate nomination in West Virginia. The main issue was Pittenger's vote to approve the budget bill.

"We are conceding the election", Blankenship said.

Joe Donnelly (D) has held one of Indiana's senator spots since 2013, and Todd Young (R) has held the other since previous year. Joe Manchin is widely expected to easily defeat his challenger, Paula Jean Swearengin.

Curtis Wilkerson, a West Virginia-based pollster for the nonpartisan firm Orion Strategies predicted that "the establishment vote will be split between Morrissey and Jenkins".
