Statement by Chambers for Indiana Senior Strategist Marty Obst on U.S. Senator Mike Braun Backing Out of Final Primary Debate

INDIANAPOLIS (Apr. 23, 2024) – Chambers for Indiana Senior Strategist Marty Obst today released the following statement after it was reported U.S. Senator Mike Braun had backed out of tonight’s final Republican gubernatorial primary debate:

“Career politician U.S. Senator Mike Braun continues to insult Hoosiers and put himself first,” stated senior strategist Marty Obst. “He’ll skip votes in D.C. to collect checks at a campaign fundraiser but then use votes to skip a debate and hide from voters and his record. It’s no wonder why his poll numbers keep dropping — Hoosiers have had enough.”


U.S. Senator Mike Braun missed a vote on a $1.2 trillion spending package last month to go home and sleep after attending a campaign fundraiser.
