INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — One of the largest business organizations in the U.S. is endorsing Republican Mike Braun in the Indiana Senate race.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce announced Tuesday that it was backing the businessman and former state lawmaker, who is challenging Sen. Joe Donnelly, one of the most vulnerable Democrats up for re-election.
The organization released an ad attacking Donnelly for voting against the Republican-led tax overhaul.
The group says the ad started airing Monday on broadcast and cable TV, but did not address how much they will spend to help Braun.
The group spent at least $3.7 million backing GOP Sen. Todd Young against Democrat Evan Bayh in 2016.
The Indiana Chamber of Commerce is taking a different approach. They opted against issuing an endorsement in the race.
