One Senate seat is up for election in Indiana, held by a Democratic incumbent. Voters will also choose representatives for nine House seats, two of which are held by Democrats and seven by Republicans. See Indiana’s primary results.
Sen. Joe Donnelly (D) has expressed support for President Trump’s priorities during the campaign but could be hobbled by his recent vote against the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh. His Republican opponent is auto-parts businessman Mike Braun, a former state lawmaker. Braun bested two House Republicans in the primary by running an anti-Washington campaign. Trump won Indiana by nearly 19 points.
