Indiana Republican Mike Braun smashes fundraising records after announcing gubernatorial run

 January 7, 2023

Republican Senator Mike Braun of Indiana has raised $1.5 million within the first month of announcing his run for governor.

Braun told supporters that he has only just begun:

From raising $1.5 million within one month, more grassroots donors than anyone else in the races, and numerous statewide polls showing a commanding, double-digit lead, it’s truly humbling to have the support of Hoosiers. Despite all of the support and momentum, we will take nothing for granted, and I promise to campaign just as hard as when I defeated three career politicians in 2018.

In the coming year, I will continue my annual tradition of visiting all 92 counties and unveil my vision to reduce the cost of healthcare, create good-paying Hoosier jobs, and a plan to stand with law enforcement to reduce crime.

"Braun’s campaign said that no other candidate has raised this much money within one month of announcing their candidacy for governor. Braun also had more individual donors than his opponents, suggesting he has a strong grassroots network across Indiana," reported Breitbart.

"Braun hopes to replace the outgoing Republican Governor Eric Holcomb, who has been term-limited," reports Breitbart. "Braun leads Eric Doden, a former Mike Pence gubernatorial appointee, Indiana Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch, and others."
