Rep. Luke Messer (R-Greensburg/Muncie), who has been considered a sure Senate candidate, confirmed via Twitter yesterday that he will enter the statewide race. Mr. Messer has scheduled a formal announcement for the August 12th. To counter Messer’s tweet, another assumed candidate, Rep. Todd Rokita (R-Brownsburg/Lafayette), released the results of his GS Strategy Group poll (7/16-18; 500 IN likely Republican primary voters) that shows Messer trailing the former, 21-14-11%, with support for “others” covered by the last number. If the two Congressmen were the only candidates, Rep. Rokita would lead Mr. Messer, 28-20%.
