Braun to Face Donnelly, Most Incumbents Hold On
All Indiana congressional incumbents up for re-election retained their seats during Tuesday’s mid-term primaries. U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) will face Republican challenger Mike Braun. The former state representative and businessman defeated two sitting congressmen, Luke Messer and Todd Rokita, in a contentious race that attracted national attention. In the Statehouse, all incumbents seeking to keep their seats survived the primary, except for two: Dick Hamm, the Republican state representative from the 56th District, was defeated by Bradford Bennett and long-time Republican State Senator Joe Zakas was defeated in the 11th District by Linda Rogers.
