Do endorsements really make a difference in political campaigns? They must move the needle slightly, why else would organizations keep making them and then candidates promote the heck out of them?
U.S. Senate candidate Republican Mike Braun picked up another one Tuesday. The Indiana Manufacturers Association threw their support behind Braun.
Manufacturing is the backbone of Indiana's economy, & I'm honored to accept this endorsement from the leading advocate for Hoosier manufacturers: @IMA1901. I look forward to working with IMA to keep Indiana manufacturing thriving & keep D.C. out of their way. #INSen #IBackBraun pic.twitter.com/TfJDVsS3RO

To my count, Braun has been endorsed by the Indiana Right to Life, the National Right to Life, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and now, the Indiana Manufacturers Association. Democrat Joe Donnelly has the approval of……well, Chuck Schumer and Elizabeth Warren.
Braun is looking to replace, Joe “with Hoosiers when it’s politically beneficial for me” Donnelly on Nov. 6.
