(INDIANAPOLIS) – It’s less than three weeks to Election Day in Indiana cities and towns.
Both parties are targeting the state’s two biggest cities, Indianapolis and Fort Wayne, with Democrats looking to defend incumbents Joe Hogsett and Tom Henry, and Republicans hoping to pull upsets.
In seven of the next eight largest cities, the races for mayor are uncontested. State Democratic Chairman John Zody says Democrats still hope to build their bench even in those cities, in races for council or clerk-treasurer.
Republicans are targeting an open seat in Kokomo, where Democratic incumbent Greg Goodnight is retiring. And both parties are prioritizing New Albany, where Democratic Mayor Jeff Gahan is seeking a third term.
