Candidates continue to file to run for election in Bartholomew County’s upcoming primaries.

Since our last report a week ago, in the 9th Congressional District race, Matthew Fyfe has filed to run as a Democrat. The seat is being vacated by Congressman Trey Hollingsworth. That district now includes southern Bartholomew County.
