Andrew Horning, a 2012 Senate candidate who previously ran as a Libertarian, announced Thursday he will seek the GOP nomination to challenge Sen. Joe Donnelly (D). Horning said he’s running “because he's unable to find any substantive differences between the five other contenders, and believes Hoosier GOP voters deserve an unique choice.”

In 2012, Horning took nearly 6 percent in the Senate race, finishing in third. (Kokomo Perspective)

BIPARTISANSHIP. Donnelly “is the second-most bipartisan senator who has served in Congress since 1993, according to a Georgetown University study. The study, from the university's McCourt School of Public Policy and Richard G. Lugar Center, shows that only Lincoln Chafee, a former Republican senator and governor of Rhode Island, was more bipartisan during his Senate tenure than Donnelly has been.” (Indianapolis Star)
