Susan Brooks Chooses Sides in Indiana Senate Primary
September 20, 2017
GOP congresswoman endorses Luke Messer, will chair “Women for Luke”
Indiana Rep. Susan W. Brooks endorsed fellow Hoosier Rep. Luke Messer’s Senate bid Wednesday. She’s the first member of the delegation to publicly choose sides in what’s already become a nasty member-on-member primary war between Messer and Rep. Todd Rokita as the GOP tries to unseat the Democratic incumbent Joe Donnelly.
“Luke and I have been friends for a long time, and being his colleague and watching him work up close, I have no doubt he’ll make a great U.S. Senator,” Brooks said in a statement.
“Luke is a proven conservative, but more than that, he is a respected and skillful leader who builds the relationships necessary to get our shared priorities enacted into law,” she added.
