Republican businessman and U.S. Senate candidate Mike Braun’s campaign says claims by Congressman Todd Rokita that Rokita has always been a Donald Trump support are “fake news.”
Rokita made the claim during a Wednesday interview with WIBC Radio Show host Tony Katz as he challenged both Braun and Congressman Luke Messer’s conservative credentials. Rokita called Messer a “Never Trumper” and said Braun voted in the Democratic primary in 2008.
However, the Associated Press reported that in a 2016 interview with Fox 59, Rokita, who was originally a supporter of Marco Rubio, called Trump “vulgar, if not profane.”
In a news release, Braun also said,“This is what voters are sick of: politicians saying one thing and doing another to get elected.”
The primary is May 8.
