Sen. Mike Braun (R-IN) endorsed Donald Trump on Monday, becoming the 11th GOP senator to rally behind the former president’s 2024 bid to retake the White House.

Braun, who is running for governor of Indiana, made the announcement in a statement posted to his campaign account on X. He picked Trump over fellow Hoosier Mike Pence, a former Indiana governor and Trump’s former vice president.

“As a Main Street Entrepreneur and political outsider, I’ve seen firsthand how the Washington swamp works against Hoosiers and works overtime to hamper our prosperity,” Braun said.

“Donald Trump is a businessman and outsider. Together we took on the Washington swamp with a historic victory in the 2018 Indiana Senate race. We installed constitutional conservatives on the Supreme Court who have protected the unborn and our Second Amendment rights, and we disrupted the cozy, self-serving Washington elites who are bankrupting our country,” the senator added.

“Donald Trump is the candidate capable of returning us to the America First policies that delivered unmatched prosperity and security for the American people. I give Donald Trump my endorsement for President of the United States,” Braun concluded.


Braun is the 11th senator to endorse Trump, following: Sens. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Ted Budd (R-NC), Steve Daines (R-MT), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Bill Hagarty (R-TN), Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS), Markwayne Mullin (R-OK), Eric Schmitt (R-MO), Tommy Tuberville (R-AL), and J.D. Vance (R-OH).

Trump also has the endorsements of 75 members of the U.S. House, according to an Insider tracker.

A great deal of resources are being spent on helping Trump combat four criminal indictments, but he remains the front-runner in polling for the GOP nomination contest with more than 55% support among a large field of competitors — and his national polling average once again edged out President Joe Biden in a hypothetical general election rematch with about 415 days until the 2024 general election.
