Democrats look ahead after good turnout for primaries



Following primary voting, St. Joseph County Democrats are optimistic about November’s general election.

Mel Hall topped Democrats for the chance to face Jackie Walorski in the second district. Bill Redman sits at the top of a  Sheriff’s race that is so close it’ll be recounted and overall St. Joseph County Democrats are looking forward.

“Our turnout today was incredible," Jason Critchlow, the chairperson of the St. Joseph County Democratic Party said "If I’m a Republican right now I’m seeing this turnout tonight and I’m worried. I mean they had this hotly contested Republican primary senate race and and Democrats here in St. Joe County outvoted them two to one.”

Democrats usually hold St. Joe county. They will have to wait for November to see if they can pull the traditionally red second district away from Jackie Walorski.

Voting for the general election is only 182 days away. Mel Hall has counted.
