President Trump on Thursday night heaped praise on newly minted Indiana GOP Senate nominee Mike Braun while escalating attacks on his opponent, incumbent Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.).
During a campaign rally in Elkhart, Ind., Trump lauded Braun as an effective businessman and someone who will be a loyal backer of the presidents agenda while characterizing Donnelly as simply awaiting marching orders from Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.).
This November Indiana will face an important choice: you can send a really incredible swamp person back to the Senate like Joe Donnelly, or you can send us a Republican like Mike Braun to drain the swamp," Trump said, adding Donnelly "will do whatever Chuck Schumer and [House Minority Leader] Nancy Pelosi tell him what to do.
If Joe Donnelly, Sleepin Joe and the Democrats, get back into power, remember what I said: they will raise your taxes, they will destroy your jobs, and they are going to knock the hell out of your borders, he added.
Trump took repeated jabs at Donnelly as Republicans target the vulnerable incumbent, one of 10 Senate Democrats running for reelection this year in states that Trump carried in the 2016 election.

Awaiting Trump’s name for Manchin, Tester, , Brown Ohio, North Dakota Heidi etc.
Does Trump have a name for McCaskill and Nelson?
“Sleepin’ Joe” will do whatever Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi tell him what to do.
Sleepin’ Joe......I LOVE IT!!!!
Huh! I had no idea what he looked like, but now that I see what he looks like, Sleepin’ Joe strikes me as being ideal!
If you saw tonight’s Trump rally in IN and are a Dem, you should be very afraid.
It appears Trump will be campaigning hard for the GOP and his message is a Democrat campaign killer
Trump basically is making the case
2016 wasn’t my election, it was our election.
See all this stuff we are doing you really like, Dem so and so running in Nov voted against it.
See all this stuff you hated and we got rid of, Dem x voted to keep it.
See all this stuff you still want done. Democrat candidate such and such will vote to stop us.
The question is whether the Indiana GOP can unite behind the outsider Mike Braun who beat the two insiders in the primary.
Its worth noting that only one of Braun's primary opponents, Todd Rokita, got a shout out from the President at yesterday's rally.
Hope this strategy reaches Trump supporters who would otherwise vote once every four years.
Time to tell Heidi, Manchin, Brown, Tester, Casey, Claire , Tammy there time is up. Trump cannot do it, but their voters can say “You’re fired!”
That Blue Wave is looking like another Red Tsunami.
And fire Nelson and Sen Debbie too.
In Indiana many longtime Dems voted Trump. My neighbor a retired union guy told me he voted for Trump even though he is not supposed to. His words. The auto industry (GM/Delphi) was hammered in this town though.
Great having secret ballot.
I wonder how many voters in Oregon can keep their vote secret? It is an election by mail state
