LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Indiana Congressman Todd Rokita has announced plans to enter the U.S. Senate race, and released his first campaign ad on Wednesday. 

Rokita is entering the Republican primary in an effort to unseat Democratic Senator Joe Donnelly. His seat is viewed as one of the most vulnerable up for re-election next year.

Donnelly's campaign released a statement saying he works hard for Hoosiers every single day.

Rokita also faces competition from a growing field of candidates in the primary, including U.S. Representative Luke Messer.
