Figures Finagled in S.B. Mayor's Race

Tuesday’s primary election sent some mixed messages about the domination Democrats have had on the South Bend Mayor’s office.

On one hand, Mayor Stephen Luecke’s challenger for the democratic nomination picked up 12-hundred votes, although William Davis spent a grand total of 100-dollars on a rather relaxed campaign.

On the other hand, the combined vote totals of all three mayoral challengers, Davis, Manigault, and Miller:
fell a thousand votes short of the amount tallied by Mayor Luecke.

“In the primary I was taking shots from three different directions,” said Mayor Luecke on election night. “It'll be good to have one opponent and engage in positive discussions about what can happen in the city of South Bend, the good things going on.”

“I’m going to talk about the truth,” said Republican Nominee Juan Manigault, “and truth is we've lost a lot of companies to Mishawaka, and outside of our community cause of a lack of responsiveness of this city government.”

Manigault won the Republican nomination by collecting 1,690-votes.

Stephen Luecke captured the democratic nod with 4,781 votes.
