INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - One of the four Republican candidates looking to unseat GOP Congressman Dan Burton says his campaign is gaining momentum.
Luke Messer announced Tuesday morning he has more than 500 endorsements including state representatives, county prosecutors and sheriffs.
Messer said he has worked hard to build a strong grassroots campaign that will be financially successful.
“It is no exaggeration to say hundreds and hundreds of Hoosiers are coming together to bring positive, conservative change for our country,” said Messer.
Republicans John McGoff, Mike Murphy, and Brose McVey are also challenging Burton.
