Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) was in Mishawaka Thursday morning campaigning with Indiana Senate candidate Mike Braun.
The room at the St. Joseph County Republican Headquarters in Mishawaka was packed with people waiting to meet and hear from the two Republicans.
Graham spoke about the immigration, taxes, the Affordable Care Act -- which he called the "Unaffordable Care Act" -- and the hearings for Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
He made several pleas to a receptive crowd to vote for Braun.
“We’ve done this with 51 votes. Please send Mike," Graham said. "We need more votes, more reliable votes.”
Ethan Hunt skipped some college classes to be at the event. He says he thinks Graham is doing a good job in the Senate and was glad he chose to come to Indiana.
“We thought that Lindsey did a really good job of saying the way that we think here in Indiana," Hunt said. "He did a really good job of doing that in Washington, and I think that’s why there were so many people here to support him and listen to what he has to say.”
Other prominent politicians will be in Indiana in the run-up to the election. President Donald Trump will be in Indianapolis on Friday and Fort Wayne on Monday. Former President Barack Obama will be in Gary on Sunday.
