WESTVILLE, Ind.–Tonight’s debate between candidates for U.S. Senate from Indiana, may cover business issues that affect the way you live, purchase, and do business in Indiana. Democrat incumbent Joe Donnelly will debate Republican challenger Mike Braun and Libertarian Lucy Brenton, at Purdue University Northwest, in Westville.

“When you talk about these national issues, trade, you talk about tariffs, steel, aluminum, soybeans, you talk about the ag sector, all of these things have a real impact in Indiana,” said Gerry Dick, with Inside Indiana Business, looking ahead to the debate, on Tony Katz and the Morning News.

He said he believes those national issues, which are so important to the Hoosier business community, will have an impact on the outcome of the election.

Most of the questions that the candidates will answer have been pre-selected by the Indiana Debate Commission, and were submitted through their website.

“This is a manufacturing state, We’re also a large ag state, as well. These issues have a real impact,” said Dick. “Immigration is another one that impacts the state of Indiana, tax structure.”

Dick said he believes further deregulation of businesses will have a further impavct on Hoosier business, because it frees up capital and allows people to invest.

“I hear business people talk about it all the time,” he said.

The debate is at 7 p.m. Eastern time, and 6 p.m. Central. It will be broadcast on TV on CSPAN, WISH-TV and other TV outlets, and you’ll get full coverage on this site.
