What else?

Donnelly and Braun are slated to hold a final debate on Tuesday.

President Donald Trump officially endorsed Braun in September during a campaign rally in Evansville, Indiana.

The Senate election in Indiana is one of 10 “most likely to flip in 2018,” CNN reported in January.

The Cook Political Report calls the race a toss-up. An average of polls compiled and analyzed by RealClearPolitics has Braun up by 0.5 percentage points.

The midterm elections will be Nov. 6.
