Luke Puckett wins 2nd Congressional District Republican nomination

Three Republicans battled Tuesday for the GOP nomination for the 2nd Congressional District.

The race between Joe Roush, Luke Puckett, and Tony Zirkle garnered national attention because of Zirkle's appearance at an Adolf Hitler birthday celebration.

Luke Puckett took about 50-percent of the vote over his two rivals.

Puckett was the candidate endorsed by the Republican Party and is now the nominee.

The Elkhart County businessman now faces incumbent Democrat Joe Donnelly in the November election.
