Senator Rand Paul is endorsing Rep. Marlin Stutzman in Indiana’s US Senate race.

“I know Marlin Stutzman will be a principled conservative who will defend life and liberty as the next US Senator from Indiana,” Sen. Paul said.

Stutzman currently represents Indiana’s 3rd District in the US House of Representatives.

In Indiana’s May 3 primary, Stutzman is running for the Republican nomination against Rep. Todd Young – Indiana’s 9th District congressman in the US House.

The Indiana Debate Commission held a debate between the two Republican candidates on Monday night.
