Roberson Wins Elkhart Democratic Mayoral Primary


Candidate Rod Roberson won the primary for Democrats running for Elkhart Mayor with 417 votes which was 57.52% of the vote in that race.

Ashley Boling-Molyneaux got 308 votes which was 42.48% of the vote.

Moments before ⁦Roberson⁩ was told he had won the Democratic nomination for mayor, he was casually sitting on the sidewalk on a folding chair chatting with friends and supporters. The moment he entered, the crowd erupted with applause and screams

Here is a concession statement from Boling-Molyneaux:

"I am humbled by your support, by the hundreds of volunteers hours poured into this campaign, by your belief that Elkhart would benefit from our bolder vision. To all of you - our loyal volunteers, donors, and supporters - thank you for engaging. It isn’t easy to care about things because you risk being disappointed. Today we are disappointed, but tomorrow we will wake up, proclaim it to be a new day, and move on to the next task to make our community better." 

In November Roberson will face a former Elkhart two-term mayor Dave Miller.
