VP Pence's brother wins GOP nomination for Indiana US House seat

Just 17 minutes after the last polls closed in IN, the Associated Press declared Greg Pence the victor of the GOP primary race and the party's nominee for the state's 6th District U.S. House seat. His victory triggered a backlash from liberal activists, who took to Twitter to denounce Greg Pence as "homophobic" and unfit for public office.

During the visit, the former IN governor says he'll campaign for Mike Braun, who claimed the Republican nomination IN the race for Democrat Joe Donnelly's U.S. Senate seat Tuesday.

Greg Pence, an antique mall owner with deep roots in the district, will get a further boost when his brother and Trump visit the area to help him campaign on Thursday.

The seat in Indiana's 6th district used to be occupied by his brother.

He also has pledged to "fight for Hoosier (Indiana) values, not DC values", even though his brother is first in line to the presidency. With 23 percent of precincts reporting, Pence had 67 percent of the vote. His opponent in the fall will be Muncie businesswoman Jeannine Lee Lake, who won a six-way race for the Democratic nomination with 38 percent of the vote Tuesday.

The seat is now held by Rep. Luke Messer, who chose not to run for re-election in order to run in the Senate primary, which he lost Tuesday night to upstart challenger Mike Braun.
