Congressman Messer Launches U.S. Senate Campaign at Annual Family BBQ

On Saturday, U.S. Congressman Luke Messer launched his campaign for United States Senate alongside his family and friends at the 6th Annual Messer Family BBQ in Morristown, Indiana.

“Hoosiers deserve a United States Senator who will look out for them 100 percent of the time… not just talk like a Hoosier back home, then vote with the liberals in Washington,”Messer said during his announcement speech. “Good-paying jobs, less government and a stronger America. That’s what I'll be fighting for.”

Hoosier supporters from across Indiana joined Messer for his announcement, including Indiana elected officials and Vice President Mike Pence's brother Greg Pence, who is the Messer campaign Finance Chair.

“Today I am standing with Luke Messer because he stands with Hoosiers,” Greg Pence said. “Luke Messer is the only candidate who can unite our Party, defeat Joe Donnelly, and help President Trump and my brother Mike Pence deliver results for Hoosiers.”

Indiana State Senate President Pro Tempore David Long endorsed Luke Messer for U.S. Senate on Thursday.

Earlier in the year, Messer announced his statewide finance committee, chaired by Greg Pence and made up of Hoosier business and political leaders from around the state.

“Together, we will win this election, and send a big message to our nation that Indiana will not stand idly by and watch the promise of our great country melt away,” Messer said. “Generations before us have risen to the challenge, and now is our time.”
