LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Congressman Todd Rokita is visiting 50 cities across the state to drum up support before the primary election on May 8.


Monday he stopped by Lafayette. Rokita is up against U.S. congressman Luke Messer and former Indiana state representative Mike Braun in next week's election. The winner challenges Joe Donnelly for his U.S. Senate seat in November. Rokita said he stands by his conservative voting record and his allegiance to President Trump. If elected to the Senate, he vows to vote to cut spending and decrease taxes.

Supporter Robert Hagen said Rokita's overall track record is why he's voting for him.

"You can't be a one issue voter. You have to take the whole spectrum of what that person represents. Anybody can pick apart one issue they don't agree with. You can't do that. You have to take the whole enchilada," Hagen said.

Supporter Andrew Fischer said Rokita is who he says he is.

"The one thing that I look for in any politician is what their voting history has been and what policies they've sipported in the past. Any politician can say something and then do something else," Fischer said.

Rokita expressed the importance of building a wall on the U.S. and Mexico border and making English the country's official language. He said these both of these will help unify the country.
