Trump endorsed Indiana Rep. Jim Banks in his bid to replace Mike Braun, who is currently running for governor.
"In a statement, Trump said that he knew Jim Banks well, and he would be a great senator for Indiana. He noted that he would fight for lower taxes and regulations, as well as for the protection of the Second Amendment. He also said that Banks would never let his supporters down."
Since he was the only declared candidate so far, Banks has been able to raise the most amount of money. Besides Daniels, other potential candidates include former Rep. Trey Honigsworth and Victoria Spartz.
During the 2022 midterms, Trump endorsed hundreds of candidates. Many of them ran in deep-red or uncontested races. In states such as Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Wisconsin, and Arizona, only two of Trump's statewide candidates were able to win.
Since 2012, no Democrat has won a major race in Indiana. In 2018, Mike Braun defeated Joe Donnelly, who was then the state's representative. Trump carried the state in both 2016 and 2020.
In response to Trump's endorsement, Banks posted a statement on his Twitter page, saying that he was proud to be associated with the president.
Banks has also received the endorsements of several prominent Republican politicians, such as Marco Rubio, Tom Cotton, JD Vance, Larry Bucshon, and Steve Daines.
