Conservative Outsider Mike Braun Charging Ahead In Indiana Senate Race

Businessman and conservative outsider Mike Braun has called on his two leading opponents, Congressmen Todd Rokita and Luke Messer, to join with him and denounce the news that House Republicans are considering bringing back the pork-barrel projects known as earmarks.

“Republicans ran on a promise to drain the swamp, and now they want to bring back the corrupt tool that led to multiple indictments and helped destroy voters’ faith in Republicans as good stewards of tax dollars?” said Braun. “My position on earmarks is this – I oppose them, I won’t take them, and I’ll do everything I can do Mike Brauneliminate them, even if that means offering amendments in the Senate to strike projects inserted by members of my own party.”

“Congressmen Todd Rokita and Luke Messer both serve in the House. They should join with me in denouncing and opposing any plan to bring earmarks back,” added Braun.

Braun’s challenge to incumbents Rokita and Messer was a forceful lead-up to his third statewide media buy touting his business and job creation experience.

Braun has just released his third flight of television and radio advertisements, titled “Bring Them Back.” The ads will run statewide on broadcast television and radio. Braun is still the only candidate airing television ads in the Indiana Senate race.

“Bring Them Back” begins by highlighting the hits that Indiana workers have taken as a result of career politicians putting foreign interests ahead of American ones. It then pivots to Braun’s plan – bring those jobs back, by utilizing the same no-nonsense business mindset he used to create hundreds of Indiana jobs.

“Career politicians in D.C. have done little to help the American worker, serving special interests and lobbyists instead of their constituents,” said Braun. “I’m running for the Senate on my record of actually creating jobs for Indiana - not just talking about it.”
