Incumbent U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly says he ready to take his Republican challenger Mike Braun.

Braun defeated Congressmen Luke Messer and Todd Rokita in Tuesday’s primary.

In appearance on WIBC’s Tony Katz and the Morning News,  Braun said Donnelly was siding with Washington liberals as opposed to Hoosiers.

At a news conference today, Donnelly said he stands by Hoosiers, and disagreed with his party on several measures including some Trump nominations.

When asked about Braun’s ability to self-finance, Donnelly said he is ready to take on what Braun and the Republicans will bring.

You can hear Donnelly in the Leon-Tailored Audio above.  It runs about 15 minutes.
