Joe Donnelly in November in what is expected to be one of the country's most competitive Senate contests.

Messer had raised $2.9 million, and Rokita had raised close to $2.8 million, according to their campaign finance reports filed with the Federal Election Commission. Donnelly about Braun's win.

"It can get intense, it can get harsh", Braun said of the campaign he ran against Indiana Reps.

Ohio's Democratic gubernatorial primary was closely watched on Tuesday in case of unexpected signs of strength from Kucinich.
