Braun wins US Senate seat over Donnelly

Braun wins US Senate seat over Donnelly

Several news organizations called the race in Braun's favor with about 50% of precincts reporting in, including CBS News, ABC News and NBC News.

Republican candidate Mike Braun has successfully unseated incumbent Democratic Senator Joe Donnelly in IN; turning a blue seat red after a contentious election battle.

IN businessman Mike Braun seeks to upend incumbent Sen.

Braun's victory in the red state makes him the first Republican of the evening to cement a win, and comes after a bruising election in which he and Donnelly accused one another of getting rich on outsourcing and sparred over policy.

According to Braun's campaign website, he touts freezing healthcare premiums for a decade for his employees (Braun owns distribution and logistics companies).

Braun also went hard after Donnelly for his splits with President Trump and support for President Obama, from his opposition to the GOP's tax plan and vote against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, to his support for the Iran nuclear deal.

President Donald Trump has been interrupted multiple times by protesters during his IN rally on his final midterm sprint.

The latest poll: A Fox News poll released at the beginning of this month showed 45 percent of respondents supporting Donnelly, who took office in 2012, and 38 percent for Braun, a former state representative.

He highlighted his support for Trump's border wall and has come out strongly against socialized medicine.

What pundits are saying: Washington Post columnist Charles Lane wrote that the race "shows the clash within the two parties", as Donnelly is a running as a moderate Democrat during a time when the party's national tone is moving further to the left, while Braun - a pro-Trump, anti-establishment Republican - is the kind of candidate who defines the Trump era GOP.
