Jeff Siegal wins Republican primary for Elkhart County sheriff

A new Sheriff will be taking over in Elkhart County.

Jeff Siegel won with 9,500 votes

Fred Mock, a jail investigator, and Captain John Perry, a jail commander, ran in a 3-way race.

Siegel says he put a lot of emphasis on campaigning.

"We've been out, we've been knocking on doors, walking in parades, hitting it on social media. Trying to reach out to as many voters and supporters that are out there."

Since no Democrats filed to run in the primary, state law says the party has until July to decide if it wants to slate a candidate to challenge Siegel in November.
