Rep. Mike Braun (R-Jasper) will leave one elected office as he runs for another.
Braun announced Friday he will resign the seat in the Indiana House he’s held for three years as he vies for U.S. Senate.
Braun jumped into the Senate GOP primary in August. A wealthy business owner from Jasper, he poured $800,000 of his own money into his campaign in the last fundraising quarter.
Braun says he looks forward to serving Hoosiers in a different capacity as he steps down from his House seat. His resignation takes effect Nov. 1.
A caucus of Republican precinct committee members will choose a replacement who will serve out the remainder of Braun’s term, which expires next year.
