Joe Hogsett Re-Elected Mayor of Indianapolis

Hogsett says it's not difficult to see what makes Indianapolis so wonderful.

INDIANAPOLIS-- Joe Hogsett has been re-elected as mayor of Indianapolis. 

Hogsett was challenged by Republican Jim Merritt and Libertarian Douglas McNaughton, but pulled away early Tuesday night. At one point, he held 75% of the vote. 

"This night is young, but I am not," Hogsett said in his victory speech at the Athenaeum in the Basil Theater.

"Tonight, we celebrate a victory that is sweet because, like this building, like this city, it is something we built ourselves. It is a monument to something that is uniquely ours, and my friends, we're not done building yet," Hogsett said. 

Merritt called Hogsett to concede the race shortly after 8 pm. 

Hogsett, 63, took office in 2016. Previously he was Indiana secretary of state, an Indiana Democratic Party chairman and a U.S. attorney for federal court in Indianapolis from 2010-2014.
