Anti-abortion groups have had a huge ground game this cycle — they especially targeted Indiana to oust Donnelly, so this is their first test tonight.
 
 
Og þar virðist atlagan hafa heppnazt.
 

Senator Joe Donnelly, a centrist Democrat, is trying to hold on to a seat in a conservative state where Republicans have consolidated power in recent years.

Mr. Donnelly is one of several red-state Democrats facing tough re-election campaigns, and his race is seen as vital for Democrats to win if they are to have any chance of seizing the majority in the Senate. Mr. Donnelly is facing Mike Braun, a Republican businessman and former state legislator who defeated two sitting congressmen in the primary.

Mr. Donnelly supports President Trump’s proposed wall on the Mexican border and has touted his work with congressional Republicans. But he has also voted against several of Mr. Trump’s signature policies, including the tax cuts. Mr. Braun is running as an unabashed supporter of the president, and has pledged to “drain the swamp” and protect gun rights.

Mr. Trump’s trade policies have had uneven effects in the state. The steel towns along Lake Michigan have benefited, while farmers and manufacturers to the south have complained.
