Indiana Republican Congressman, Jim Banks, has secured a significant endorsement for his Senate campaign. Former Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, has come forward to endorse Banks in his bid to replace outgoing Senator Mike Braun.

In a statement obtained by Fox News Digital, Pompeo praised Banks as an America-first leader who has served our nation in Afghanistan, Indiana in the State Senate, and fought unapologetically for a strong America in Congress.

Pompeo emphasized the need for fighters like Banks who are committed to securing the border, strengthening the military, and pushing back against Biden's agenda.

Expressing his gratitude, Banks acknowledged Secretary Pompeo's support and highlighted his important work in championing conservative, America-first values on the world stage.

Banks, who has already gathered endorsements from various local, state, and federal Republicans, is considered the favorite in the race for Indiana's Senate seat.

Banks, in an interview, welcomed competition but wasted no time criticizing his primary challenger. He accused his opponent of trying to 'screw' Indiana families with price gouging and profit-maximizing tactics during the pandemic.

Banks vowed to prevent someone like his opponent from ever approaching the United States Senate, emphasizing his proven conservative track record over his opponent's lifetime of voting for Democrats.

Despite his opponent's claims of being a lifelong conservative, Banks remains confident that Indiana voters want a senator who is dedicated to restoring Trump administration policies on China, the border, the economy, and other critical issues.
