    Indiana Democrat touts support of Trump in bid to keep seat

    (Reuters) - During the U.S. Senate debate in Indiana on Monday, it was difficult at times to tell which candidate was the Democrat and which the Republican, as both routinely cited their support of President Donald Trump’s agenda.
    For incumbent Democratic Senator Joe Donnelly, that reflected the fact that he will need the president’s supporters to win reelection in a state that overwhelmingly supported Trump two years ago.

    Donnelly, a first-term senator, is trying to stave off a challenge from Republican businessman Mike Braun, and in doing so, keep alive Democratic hopes of taking control of the U.S. Senate after the Nov 6. congressional elections.

    Democrats need a net gain of two Senate seats to take a majority in the upper chamber, which would allow them to more effectively counter Trump’s agenda. But doing that not only means winning at least two seats now held by Republicans, but also holding onto seats in conservative states that Trump won, including Indiana, Montana, North Dakota and West Virginia.
