New Ad: Mike Braun’s Blue Shirt Can’t Hide His Shameful Business Record

Washington, D.C. (July 26, 2018) – Today, SMP released a new statewide television ad in Indiana that continues to call out Mike Braun for hiding the truth about his business record. The ad contrasts a true blue-collar Hoosier named Mike with millionaire Mike Braun who constantly wears a blue shirt to hide the fact that he denied overtime pay to his employees, fired workers who reported mistreatment and sells products made overseas.

“Mike Braun wears his blue shirts to desperately cover up his shameful business record, but the record shows that Braun got wealthy while mistreating workers and selling foreign made products,” said Hannah Hurley, spokesperson for SMP. “Instead of looking out for his workers, Mike Braun denied overtime pay and fired employees who spoke out. Hoosiers deserve a senator who will fight for their economic well-being, and Mike Braun has proven that is just not him.”
