EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — The Latest on President Donald Trump (all times local):
President Donald Trump is giving Republican Senate candidate Mike Braun a boost as he campaigns by his side in Indiana.
Trump told a rally crowd of thousands in Evansville on Thursday that Braun is going to be a "truly great" senator.
"A vote for Mike Braun," he tells the crowd, is a vote "to Make America Great Again."
Braun is facing off with Democrat Joe Donnelly in what is viewed as one of the nation's most competitive Senate races.
Both candidates have stressed their ties to Trump, but Trump and Braun argue that Donnelly is not genuine.
Braun says Trump "needs a true ally" and "not somebody that says something when you're in Indiana and does something differently when you're in D.C."
Trump is predicting a win for Braun, telling the crowd, "We need the votes."
