In what’s been largely characterized as a contest between two Republican members of Congress, a businessman with the ability to self-fund has made the first statewide TV and radio buys in the Indiana Senate primary.
Former state Rep. Mike Braun’s $329,000 three-week radio and TV buy signals he’s making this a three-person race. He announced his campaign in August.
The TV ad will air in the Indianapolis, Fort Wayne and South Bend broadcast media markets running through Dec. 1, with a week off for Thanksgiving.
Braun is the CEO of Meyer Distributing. The TV spot plays up Braun’s business experience and credentials as a “conservative outsider.”
“I built a successful national company here in my hometown of Jasper, and it’s time we had some Hoosier know-how in the Senate, rather than more career politicians,” Braun says in the ad, according to a story by Roll Call.
