Meyer Distributing President and CEO Mike Braun became Indiana’s Republican nominee for U.S. Senate earlier this week, handily winning the primary election on May 8. He won the race with 41.2% of the vote, defeating U.S. Representative Rep. Luke Messer (R-IN) and Rep. Todd Rokita (R-IN), who garnered 30% and 28.8% of the vote (respectively). Braun will face U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly (D-IN) in the general election, November 6, 2018.
SEMA congratulates Mike Braun on his primary victory, his second win over the past few months, as Meyer Distributing was named “Warehouse Distributor of the Year” at the 2017 SEMA Show. Braun started working for Meyer Body Co. in 1981, and transitioned its business from manufacturing to distribution, forming Meyer Distributing. Over the following decades, Braun grew the business into a national distribution and logistics company with 65 locations in 38 states. Braun has also shown a commitment to public service as a member of the Jasper School Board (2004–2014) and as an Indiana State Legislator (2015–2017).
