Rep. Luke Messer (R-Greensburg/Muncie) has not officially announced his Senate candidacy, but he’s all but a formal candidate. Weeks ago, responding to Rep. Todd Rokita’s (R-Brownsburg/Lafayette) Senate candidacy, Rep. Messer tweeted that he is “in” the race, which may in retrospect prove to be his announcement. Yesterday, Mr. Messer received a key Senate endorsement: from fellow Rep. Susan Brooks (R-Carmel) who represents the adjacent district. Reps. Messer and Rokita are the headliners in the ensuing Republican primary with the winner drawing first-term Sen. Joe Donnelly (D) in the general election.
