LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Indiana Senate Candidate Mike Braun stopped in Lafayette for a meet and greet Tuesday morning, but Braun's supporters weren't the only ones there.
Members of the Indiana Democratic Party protested the event. The group stood on the sidewalk holding Chinese flags.
Protestors said the flags symbolize Braun selling foreign-made parts. Braun said he welcomes a good debate. Which is why he didn't mind the group being there.
"It would be super easy for him to just make money selling the autoparts made by hardworking Hoosiers here, but instead he tries to make more money selling cheap parts made in China, so with these flags to remind people of that," said protester Jonathan Schwartz.
"I don't mind it, I mean that is part of it, it's a blood sport in this day and age and as you can tell if you watch the debates, I like debating the issues and we will get to that in this race," said Braun.
