Republican Senate Candidate Reportedly Voted in Democratic Primaries

A wealthy Senate candidate from Indiana who bills himself as a “conservative Republican” voted for nearly two decades in the state’s Democratic primaries.

That’s according to public records obtained by The Associated Press from the Dubois County Clerk’s office, where businessman and former state lawmaker Mike Braun is registered to vote.

The 63-year-old Braun voted as a Democrat in partisan Indiana primary elections from at least 1992 until 2012, when he pulled a GOP ballot.

Braun’s campaign says he is a “lifelong Republican” but voted in Democratic primaries to impact the outcome of those races.
