Bartholomew County Democrats add candidates for November

Bartholomew County Democrats are filling some empty slots on the November ballot.

The Republic is reporting that Democrats have two candidates being added to the ballot for the at-large seats on the Bartholomew County Council — Olisa Humes and Claudette Schroer.

Cinde Wirth, who lost in the primary to Dale Nowlin to run for the statehouse district 59 seat, announced on social media that she has thrown her hat in the ring to run for Indiana State Senate District 44, now held by Republican Sen. Eric Koch, of Bedford.

The newspaper reports that parties have until Tuesday to fill open spots on the ballot before the November general election.
