U.S. Sen. Braun's brother suspends congressional bidOctober 8, 2019
By The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS — The brother of U.S. Sen. Mike Braun says a health problem is causing him to suspend his campaign for the central Indiana congressional seat being given up by Republican Rep. Susan Brooks.
Former state Rep. Steve Braun didn't identify the problem in a statement released Monday but said he was stepping away from the 5th Congressional District campaign for the next few months.
Braun filed federal documents in August to start his Republican campaign. Other Republicans seeking the nomination include state Treasurer Kelly Mitchell and Chuck Dietzen, a retired Riley Hospital for Children doctor who entered the race last week.
Brooks announced in June she would not seek re-election in 2020 after eight years in Congress.
Former Democratic lieutenant governor nominee Christina Hale is also campaigning for the seat.
