A congressman who is ducking it out in a contested primary for the Republican Party’s nomination to run for U.S. Senate will be visiting Northeast Indiana this weekend. U.S. Representative Todd Rokita will be a guest speaker for the Steuben County Republican Breakfast on Saturday.

Rokita, a Republican from Brownsburg, represents the 4th Congressional District in Indiana. He is currently in a heated battle for the Republican nomination for the candidacy for the U.S. Senate with U.S. Representative Luke Messer, a Republican from Greensburg representing the 2nd Congressional District; and state Senator Mike Braun of Jasper.

The three are seeking the nomination to run against incumbent Sen. Joe Donnelly, a Democrat from Granger who is completing his first term. Republicans are trying to regain the Senate seat held for decades by Senator Richard Lugar.

Rokita will be speaking to the Steuben Republican breakfast that starts at 8 a.m. at Timber’s in Angola.

Rokita was first elected to Congress in 2010 after having served two terms as Indiana Secretary of State. Indiana’s election law was changed to require voter identification in order to cast a ballot under Rokita.
