Abstract

In 2012, the now Senator Joe Donnelly replaced an over 30-year incumbent Republican in Indiana. In 2018, Donnelly now faces tough competition from state legislator Mike Braun to keep his seat in the Hoosier State. Laura Merrifield Wilson writes that while the state as a whole is very red, Donnelly has generally tacked to the center as a bipartisan moderate meaning that the campaign is being fought over specific positions on issues like healthcare and immigration rather than on partisanship. Whether voters will stick with the moderate Donnelly or instead turn to the Trump-surrogate Braun remains to be seen.
