Mike Braun Wins Primary

Mike Braun Wins Primary

The elections Tuesday in IN, as well as in North Carolina, Ohio and West Virginia, were the first of 11 primaries slated to take place this month that will be the latest tests of the anti-establishment fervor that helped power Mr. Trump into The White House.

Polls have closed across IN as voters finished casting ballots IN the state's bitter three-way primary for the Republican U.S. Senate nomination.

"This fall, we're going to send a message to Senator Donnelly and the rest of Washington that politics shouldn't be a career and if we want to change things we need to change the people we send there", Braun explained. "More folks that have done something in the real world", Braun said in a statement after his win.

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

Recently, the contest in West Virginia has obtained the most national attention.

Two hours after polls closed, state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey led Rep. Evan Jenkins, R-W.Va., and Blankenship 36 percent to 27.8 and 19.5, with 52 percent of precincts reporting, the Associated Press reported.

Mike Braun has captured the Republican Senate nomination, after a bitter race against two IN congressmen.

Mr. Renacci will square off in November with Sen.

Mr. Trump stayed out of the fierce battle in IN, as the candidates ran for the chance to take on Sen. But he's also a Democrat who voted against Trump's signature efforts like repealing Obamacare and cutting taxes. Both tactics are in play in his recent ad, titled "Meet the Swamp Brothers", which labels Rokita as "Todd the Fraud" and Messer as "Luke the Liberal" as it criticizes votes they cast during the Obama years. Braun will face incumbent Democratic Sen.

"Senator Donnelly is just another career politician who has spent almost his entire career in politics and government", Braun said in his statement.

"Mike Braun raises taxes like a Democrat so it's not a surprise he votes for Democrats, too", a Rokita spokesperson said of the report.

Hollingsworth himself easily defeated a Republican challenger to face Watson in the November general election.

"We're going to find out what happens in West Virginia tonight, and I may have more to say about that tomorrow", McConnell told reporters. "It will provide the Democrats an bad lot of free opposition research".

Meanwhile, Republican Mike DeWine and Democrat Richard Cordray are projected to win their party's primaries in the race to succeed term-limited GOP Gov. John Kasich. He is favored to win the seat that his younger brother previously held.

President Donald Trump welcomed the results in a Wednesday morning tweet, calling it a "great night" for the Republican Party.

He also indicated he will continue the tone and theme of his primary election campaign in his general election battle with Donnelly, regarded as among the most vulnerable Democratic senators up for re-election this year.

A Republican legislator from northern IN was defeated IN his bid for what would have been a record-tying 10th four-year term IN the state Senate, while an equally long-serving Democratic senator won his primary.
