In the race for U.S. House of Representatives, District 1, the voters' choice should be easy. Ours was. Incumbent Pete Visclosky, a Democrat, is a clear standout who is working hard on behalf of Northwest Indiana.
There's a lot at stake in today's primary election in Indiana.
Hoosiers will cast ballots in Tuesday's primary election. Unless they are Boone Township residents casting votes solely on the school funding referendum, voters must request either a Democratic or Republican ballot.
On the face of it, there are five Indiana House and Senate races on the ballot Tuesday in Lake and Porter counties. Really, though, there are only three districts involved.
If you're casting a Democratic ballot in Porter County on Tuesday, these endorsements won't mean much to you. That's because the only contested races for Porter County Council are all Republican.
There are five contested races for Lake County voters on Tuesday. We'll take them one by one.
Incumbent Roosevelt Allen Jr. faces challenger Lita Filippo for the Democratic nomination for Lake County commissioner in the 1st District.
Porter County voters have three choices for the Republican nomination for county commissioner — incumbent Nancy Adams, Jeff Good and William LaFever.
Both Democrats and Republicans have decisions to make in the Lake County sheriff's race. Each party's nominee will be chosen May 6.
Former Porter County Sheriff David Reynolds, forced out of office seven years ago by term limits, now seeks to return to his old job. He is competing against Harold Lush for the Democratic nomination.
Lake County Assessor Jolie Covaciu is the only Republican to currently hold countywide office in Lake County. Three Democrats — Jerome Prince, Michael Troxell and Jesus Ortiz Jr. — are vying for the chance to run against her in the Nov. 4 election.
The race for the Democratic nomination for Calumet Township trustee pits incumbent Mary Elgin against Gary Councilwoman Kimberly Robinson. This is one of those races you should watch — and you'll definitely want to watch the video of our endorsement interview with the two candidates.
