Republican Senator Mike Braun has thrown his hat behind former President Donald Trump in his bid to become the 47th president of the United States.
“As a Main Street Entrepreneur and political outsider, I’ve seen firsthand how the Washington swamp works against Hoosiers and works overtime to hamper our prosperity,” Braun said in a statement.
“Donald Trump is a businessman and outsider,” Braun continued. “Together, we took on the Washington swamp with a historic victory in the 2018 Indiana Senate race.”
Braun, who is running to become governor of Indiana, was a defender of Trump during his first impeachment trial. Trump helped Braun defeat then-incumbent Democrat Indiana Senator Joe Donnelly in 2018.
“Donald Trump is the candidate capable of returning us to the America First policies that delivered unmatched prosperity and security for the American people,” Braun wrote.
Braun became the 11th sitting U.S. senator to back Trump for president, joining the likes of Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), North Carolina Senator Ted Budd (R-N.C.), and Ohio Senator JD Vance (R-Ohio). Four sitting governors and more than 70 members of the House of Representatives have also endorsed Trump.
