Joe Donnelly concedes, Mike Braun wins Indiana's US Senate seat
After the results of the race were clear, Donnelly spoke to his supporters in the Hyatt Regency Ballroom in Indianapolis.
"I just want to tell you how grateful I am to all of you for the unbelievable opportunity to serve the people of Indiana. We have the opportunity to serve everybody across the state and try to make a difference in their lives with healthcare and a lot of different good things and the people of our state are so wonderful. I called Mike Braun to tell him I will do everything I can to ensure a smooth transition because that’s what the people of Indiana deserve," Donnelly said. "You’ve given me so much and I’m so grateful to all of you and please know this if there’s ever anything I can do for you count on me because of this: we love this country so much we need to make sure we work to bring our country together rather than two divided to make sure every American has a chance.”
Donnelly urged his supporters to stay active, stay engaged and continue to fight for what they believe is right.
