Mike Braun, Steve Hammer host joint campaign event

Two candidates in two different races team up for a campaign event on Monday night in Vanderburgh County. 

Republican Indiana Senate candidate Mike Braun and Vanderburgh County Commission candidate Steve Hammer held a meet-and-greet at Roca Bar North. 

The two say they met each other in Indianapolis and see similarities in each other. Both candidates dwell on being businessmen who hope to bring change in the way government works. 

"We're just very similar, businessmen, conservative," said Hammer. "We want to make government better, bring common sense to politics. So, we've been together four or five different events down here in Evansville." 

Braun is running against Congressmen Luke Messer and Todd Rokita in the Republican Primary for Indiana U.S. Senate. Incumbent Senator Joe Donnelly is running unopposed in the Democratic Primary.

Hammer is facing Mike Duckworth, Sr. and Vernon Stevens in the Republican Primary race for the Vanderburgh County Commission District 2 seat.
