Former state Rep. Mike Braun (R) “has pulled his controversial campaign ad about illegal immigration that used the name and photo of a killed Uber driver without the family’s permission. The ad focused on an alleged drunken driver who killed Jeffrey Monroe and Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and how the country needed to strengthen its borders to protect the country from people like Manuel Orrego-Savala, a Guatemalan who has twice been deported from the U.S. and was in the country illegally when his car struck the pair who were on the side of a highway on Feb. 4.” The spot started running on Feb. 20.

Reps. Luke Messer (R-06) and Todd Rokita (R-04) are also running to face Sen. Joe Donnelly (D).
