Few contested races in primary elections

4 Democrats vying to oust Rep. Jackie Walorski.

Primary elections May 6 in Miami County are set to be fairly quite this year, with just three contested races on the ballot.

Democrats can cast their ballot for four candidates running for the 2nd Congressional District and vying to oust Republican incumbent Jackie Walorski in the general election in November.

Republicans can vote for 12 contenders competing for seats on the Republican state convention and four candidates running for the Pipe Creek Township Advisory Board.

The remaining races already are set and won’t be up for a vote until the general election in November.

The deadline to file as a primary candidate was Friday.

“There’s not much taking place here in Miami County,” said Paul Wilson, deputy clerk of voter registration. “The waters haven’t been stirred by anything.”

Even in the general election, only a handful of races are contended. The most high profile election will be for U.S. representative.

Locally, the biggest race will be for Miami County sheriff, with Republican incumbent Tim Miller facing off against Democrat James White Jr.
