Mike Braun Unseats U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly in Indiana
Incumbent Democrat Sen. Joe Donnelly has lost his senate seat after an aggressive election contest brought by Indiana State Rep. Mike Braun.
Braun, a Republican state politician and businessman, unseated Donnelly in a state heavily supportive of President Trump.
As part of an effort to keep Republican control of the U.S. Senate, the president held four political rallies in Indiana in support of Braun.
Trump appeared in Indiana in May, two days after Braun won the Republican primary, in August, on Friday, November 2, and again on Monday in Fort Wayne, a day before yesterday’s election.
Braun’s election victory yesterday in Indiana helped the Republicans keep control of the U.S. Senate.
