DISTRICT 22 STATE REP: Newcomer Curt Nisly upsets two-time incumbent Rebecca Kubacki for GOP nomination

Political newcomer dethrones incumbent Kubacki for a spot on November's ballot


Kolbe, a former Republican who served as prosecuting attorney in Kosciusko County from 1995 to 1999, ran unopposed in the Democratic primary.

Nisly said his campaign will function in the general election as it did in the primary.

“We set number and goals and we worked to hit them,” said Nisly. “And tonight was the final goal.”

District 48

Doug Miller is now on track to represent Indiana’s 48th district in the state’s House of Representatives.

Miller defeated Adam Bujalski and Jesse Bohannon in Tuesday’s election.

The primary became wide open after five-time incumbent Tim Neese chose not to run and instead will run for Elkhart mayor in the 2015 election.

“I’m thankful to my supporters and I think this speaks highly of Elkhart County as a conservative county with conservative values,” said Miller in a phone interview Tuesday night.

No Democrat ran in the primary. The Democratic Party has until noon June 30 to fill the vacancy.

Miller said if there is a contested race in the fall he will continue to reiterate his platform of education and making sure the county retains “the best and brightest” for the work force.
