Incumbent Vicki Becker wins primary for Elkhart County prosecutor
One of the races we’ve been watching in Elkhart County is between two Republicans.
Current Elkhart County Prosecutor Vicki Becker won out against challenger Marty McCloskey in the county prosecutor's race.
Becker was doing some last-minute campaigning today. She was out making the rounds, talking to constituents and addressing concerns.
Granger Community Church in Elkhart saw a steady stream of voters walking through the doors.
Before meeting with WSBT at that location, Becker started her day early at 6 a.m. in New Paris before visiting Goshen and Middlebury.
Indiana Attorney Curtis Hill was spotted at the church before our cameras got there. Becker replaced him after a caucus in 2016.
This is the first time she has had to campaign for the office.
“It's very time consuming, there's no doubt about it,” said Becker. “I enjoy meeting people, I enjoy talking, especially in small groups at community activities, and especially in the neighborhood areas. Of course, I'm just ready to get back to work, I'll be honest about that. We'll be very pleased when this day is concluded and hopefully we'll be moving forward and doing what we've been doing."
WSBT 22 reached out to Becker's opponent, former police officer and Elkhart County Commissioner Martin McCloskey.
He said he did not have time to do an interview.
