Sen. Mike Braun to Run for Indiana Governor in 2024

Indiana Sen. Mike Braun has filed paperwork to run for governor in 2024. Braun will be looking to succeed fellow Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb, who is ineligible to run for a third consecutive term.

An official announcement of Braun's candidacy is expected soon, per the Senator's Chief of Staff.  Should that happen, a crowded Senate GOP primary field may evolve. 

Indiana is one of just 10 GOP-held seats up in 2024. Democrats will be defending 21 seats. Two seats held by Senate independents that caucus with the Democrats are also on the ballot.

A special election is expected to be added to the list. Nebraska Republican Sen. Ben Sasse has announced his intention to resign in January to take over as President at the University of Florida. The timing will allow incoming GOP Gov. Jim Pillen to appoint a replacement who will serve through the special election. The seat will be up for a regular six-year term in 2026.
