Indiana chamber staying neutral in state’s US Senate race


INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana’s largest business organization won’t be endorsing any candidates in the state’s contentious U.S. Senate race this year.

The Indiana Chamber of Commerce has endorsed the Republican Senate candidate each time since the group started making federal endorsements 10 years ago.

But the chamber’s president tells The Indianapolis Star that the group found policy disagreements with both Republican nominee Mike Braun and Democratic Sen. Joe Donnelly. Chamber President Kevin Brinegar says it will remain neutral in what’s regarded as one of the nation’s most competitive Senate races.

Chamber officials wouldn’t specify their disagreements, but Braun has backed the chamber-opposed tariffs imposed by President Donald Trump and Donnelly voted against the GOP tax plan that the group supported.
