Jasper State Representative Mike Braun has officially joined the Republican scramble for the nomination to run against U-S Senator Joe Donnelly.
Braun acknowledges he starts out with a big name recognition disadvantage against Congressmen Luke Messer and Todd Rokita, but he notes neither of them has reached 30-percent in polls so far. He says that’s a gap he can close.
Braun says he’d make tax reform and deficit reduction a priority. He argues lawmakers with business experience are better equipped to make “waste, fraud and abuse” a true source of savings, not just a talking point.
