Rep. Jim Banks Announces Candidacy for U.S. Senate in Indiana, Setting Up Potential Crowded GOP Primary Race

Indiana Rep. Jim Banks has announced his candidacy for the U.S. Senate, seeking to fill the seat left open by outgoing Republican Sen. Mike Braun. Banks is a Navy veteran and conservative who has taken a stance on hot-button social issues, and is the first to enter what could be a crowded and competitive GOP primary for the open Senate seat. The primary election is scheduled for May 2022, and other prominent candidates who have expressed interest in the seat include Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita and former Rep. Luke Messer.
