INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) – In the highly contentious Senate race last night there was a big loss for Democrat Joe Donnelly.

He lost the seat he's held for six years to Republican Mike Braun.

Senator Donnelly wished Braun the best from his campaign Twitter account today.

He also thanked his supporters and said it's been one of the greatest honors of his life to represent Indiana in the senate.

Senator-Elect Braun posted this picture from backstage at GOP headquarters last night, saying "serving the state that has given me so much.. will be the honor of my life."
