IN voters vote in contentious Republican senate primary

The Democrat representing IN said, "I want to congratulate Mike Braun on his win last night". "We did it exclusively to weigh in on our local races". As voters head to the polls on Tuesday, they'll should determine which model of the Trump agenda resonates essentially the most in Indiana.

"Who is going to fight to protect our good paying jobs, and additionally who will be an independent voice for IN?" In an interview then, Rokita said Trump was "vulgar if not profane". "I have total faith in them that they want to see this on the basis of who has the most super PACs or who has the biggest bank account, but on who'll fight for them". The president will appear at a campaign stop there on Thursday along with Vice-President Mike Pence.

CNN projects he will place third, behind Attorney General Patrick Morrisey and Rep. Evan Jenkins, in the race to take on Democratic Sen.

He repeatedly blamed government regulators for the disaster, casting himself as the victim of an overzealous Obama-era Justice Department — an argument Trump regularly uses to dismiss federal agents investigating his campaign's ties to Russian Federation.

Messer, a member of House leadership, recently nominated Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize for his handling of North Korea.

Rokita now totes a cardboard cutout of Trump to rallies.

"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 promised to continue his campaign against Sen. He closes the advert by donning a "Make America Nice Once more" hat and saying he'll "proudly stand with our President and Mike Pence to empty the swamp". And although Rokita calls himself "pro-life with no exceptions" his congressional campaign committee gave money to a colleague who was publicly known to have compelled his wife and mistress to have abortions.

"In my adverts, I don't simply discuss in regards to the second modification, I present motion and there's me taking pictures an AR-15 in my advert and that's dutifully on objective", he added.

While all three Senate nominees have vulnerabilities - there's much to explore in Braun's business history and his votes in the state legislature, Democrats said Tuesday night - they are all candidates the GOP can embrace.

Blankenship said he didn't know what went wrong in the race but said the tweet from President Donald Trump calling for voters to reject him played a large role.

Braun led the candidates in campaign financing and endorsements.

Despite Rokita, Messer and Braun's apparent efforts to win the president's favor, he hasn't endorsed anyone in Indiana. Of course, they can't tell the cutouts apart. Braun credited his victory to voter disenchantment with "business as usual" and said he hoped to join other Republican senators who came from outside politics. In response, Messer accused Rokita of "spreading lies". "Mike Braun - he is a lifelong Democrat". Donnelly is one of 10 Democrats running for reelection in states Trump won in 2016, and one of five in states he won by a wide margin.

In the closely watched West Virginia GOP Senate primary, former coal baron Don Blankenship, who was convicted of a misdemeanor for conspiring to violate mine safety regulations, roiled the race and garnered headlines with racially tinged insults and sharp-tongued barbs.

Donnelly is considered one of the more vulnerable Democrats in November's general election, as in leans Republican and went for President Trump by 19 points in the 2016 election.
