Messer Wins Debate; Touts Record of Support for Trump-Pence Agenda
April 16, 2018
INDIANAPOLIS (Sunday, April 15, 2018) – Luke Messer won tonight’s Indiana Senate debate and touted his strong record of support for President Trump’s agenda.
“I am who I say I am,” Messer said. “I’m a husband, father and son of single-parent mother. I’m a person of faith and a pro-life, pro-2nd Amendment conservative. I support President Trump, and I have the record to prove it.”
In Congress, Messer has the highest rating of support for President Trump of all of his opponents in the U.S. Senate race.
In the debate, Messer took frequent aim at Senator Joe Donnelly who votes out of step with Hoosiers and blocks the Trump-Pence agenda.
“Senator Donnelly is not who he says he is,” Messer said. “Joe Donnelly tells Hoosiers he’s conservative, but he goes to Washington and votes with Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Chuck Schumer 85 percent of the time. Hoosiers deserve a Senator who votes with us 100 percent of the time.”
