Mike Braun on Principles & Values



Save America by making Indiana a beacon of freedom

After serving Hoosiers in Washington, I know now, more than ever, our problems can't be solved by the special interests and career politicians in DC, they must be solved right here at home. Hoosiers are capable and ready to lead the way, but we need new bold leadership to move forward to the future. I'm running for governor because the way we save America is to make Indiana a beacon of freedom and opportunity.

The Constitution protects our God-given rights

The Constitution protects our God-given rights to live our lives and raise our families as we choose. The rights of law-abiding gun owners, the freedom to practice our religion, and the rights of parents to protect their children from leftist ideology are under attack. Mike Braun will never waver when it comes to defending every Hoosier's rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Use record of what's been done in hometown and statehouse

Indiana and the country would benefit from not having career politicians in government. Looking ahead, Braun explained how he plans to take on Sen. Donnelly. "I know Joe Donnelly will try to come at me and I can't wait to take the record of what we've done in our hometown and the time I've spent in the statehouse, and get those values and those ideas out there," said Braun.

Braun is endorsed by Trump/MAGA endorsement list

Endorsements by Donald Trump, implying support of Trump's agenda and electoral style. The phrase `Make America Great Again` was popularized in Trump`s 2015 book Time to Get Tough:Making America Great Again. It is the campaign slogan embroidered on the ubiquitous red caps seen at Trump rallies (which after Trump`s presidency, became known as `MAGA rallies`).

Certify 2020 Presidential election as fully & fairly counted.

Braun voted NAY blocking certification of the Electoral vote

Explanation of 1/6/21 Electoral Certification, by Emily Brooks, Washington Examiner:Sen. Ted Cruz and Rep. Paul Gosar led an objection to counting Electoral College votes from the state of Arizona, the first formal objection to state results in a series of moves that will delay the certification of Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 presidential election over President Trump. Cruz is advocating for an `emergency 10-day audit` of election returns in disputed states. The usually ceremonial joint session of Congress that convenes to count and accept Electoral College votes will be put on hold as the House and Senate separately debate the objection.
