What to Know About The Indiana GOP Primary & Congressman Rokita
Rokita’s announcement, timed to step on Messer’s long-planned Saturday launch event, adds more fuel to a match-up already filled with “rancor” and “contempt,” calling each other “unhinged,” “desperate,” and a “ticking time-bomb.”
After the Republicans’ first choice candidate refused to run, today Congressman Rokita is announcing his Indiana Senate campaign — formally launching what is already an “expensive and bitter” GOP primary fight just days before a long-scheduled public campaign event for his opponent Congressman Luke Messer.
From David Bergstein, Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Spokesman: “The brawl between Congressmen Messer and Rokita is already one of the nastiest and most divisive in the country — exposing their flaws and demonstrating that their campaigns are all about their own political self-interest, not the issues that matter to hardworking Hoosiers.”
