Candidates make final push for support ahead of Tuesday's primaries

Updated:
FISHERS, Ind. -
We're just a few days away from Indiana's primary elections and candidates are making a last-minute push for support.

This year will see a big change in government for Fishers as it goes from a town to a city. That means residents there will elect a mayor for the very first time. All six candidates are Republican.

Political reporter Kevin Rader talked with our Indiana Insiders about the race.
"When you're in Hamilton County, when you're in Boone County, it's like, when you're in Lake County - the Democrat primary is the race. It's brand new. There's no history. There's no incumbent," said Republican analyst Peter Rusthoven on Indian Insiders with Kevin Rader.

"For a party that likes smaller government, they've got six people running to manage government, so that's surprising to me," countered Democratic analyst Robin Winston. "It used to be that Marion County a bastion of Republican rule. You mind my words - some day, another Democrat sitting on this set will be talking about Fishers and Carmel being competitive for our party."


If you can't make it to polls Tuesday, you can vote until noon Monday tomorrow at your county clerk's office. Remember to bring a valid driver's license or state ID.
