Braun entered the race after his two rivals, but quickly began airing ads early and often to boost his name recognition and lay claim to the label of "outsider" candidate.

The candidates favored by the oddsmakers didn't win every single race in the four-state primaries held today: Republican U.S. representative Robert Pittenger of North Carolina lost his party's nomination for another term in a rematch with 2016 opponent Mark Harris.

Mike Braun will now prepare to tackle current Democrat Senator Joe Donnelly for his U.S. Senate seat after Braun won the Republican primary on Tuesday.

Republican voter Dennis Shea said outside a downtown Indianapolis voting site that he supported Messer, but wished the campaign hadn't been so nasty.

National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) Chairman Chris Hansen applauded Braun's victory in Indiana's GOP primary.

"I'm going there to get the job done and come back home, and the only people I'll owe anything to is the voters of Indiana", Braun concluded.

Mr. Braun pumped millions of dollars from his personal fortune into touting his credentials as a businessman and political "outsider" and casting Mr. Rokita and Mr. Messer as "career politicians".

Those comments likely helped Braun, a former state legislator, win the race to be identified as the most pro-Trump of the three.

That's because Mike Braun will provide President Trump with a new partner in the Senate, working to advance conservative, Hoosier values.

The special election primary race to replace Rep. Joe Donnelly this fall. While the GOP candidates were tearing each other apart for the better part of a year, Donnelly was flying under the radar and raising money. "You can count on the fact that Vice President Pence will do everything he can to bring us all together".

Republican voters in IN are picking a Senate nominee in a race that has been dominated by personal attacks and animosity.
