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.
