Braun Makes It Official; He’s A Candidate For U. S. Senate

Mike BraunJasper (Local Sources) – A Jasper businessman and state representative has announced his intentions to seek the Republican nomination for Indiana’s US Senate seat currently held by Democratic Senator Joe Donnelly.

State Representative Mike Braun (pictured) was elected in 2014 for Indiana’s 63rd District representing parts of Dubois, Pike, Daviess, and Martin counties.

Braun will join a crowded Republican primary ballot, as Congressman Luke Messer and Congressman Todd Rokita are also planning to run.

Braun officially announced his entrance into the race on Tuesday. He is the founder and CEO of Meyer Distributing, a nationwide parts distribution company with locations in 38 states and headquartered in Jasper.

“I made my career in the private sector. Our country needs more people who can tackle big issues from perspectives gained from running a business and not a career politician’s perspective,” Braun stated. “I’ve spent my life building a business and creating jobs. I am running for US Senate because we need leaders who understand the real consequences of the failure of our federal government and are capable of delivering solutions for Hoosiers on issues like health care and tax reform.”

Braun also stated, “Joe Donnelly has consistently voted with the liberals in Washington. Donnelly voted for Obamacare, Obama’s radical Supreme Court justices, trillions in reckless spending and debt, and stood with Barack Obama as he worked to destroy this country. Now he is standing with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer as they block President Trump’s efforts to bring real conservative change to Washington.”

“I am ready to go to Washington to deliver Donald Trump reinforcements as he takes on the DC swamp. Last year’s presidential election showed that Hoosiers know outsiders with business experience are the country’s best hope to fix the broken political system in Washington. Most importantly, Hoosiers want leaders who can break the hold career politicians have on the system and make conservative change happen. It’s time to replace Joe Donnelly with a Hoosier conservative who can get the job done. That is what I will do in Washington,” Braun said.
