GREENFIELD — With just over a week until Election Day, candidates for Indiana’s 6th Congressional District are making a final push to be sure their ideas strike a chord with voters.
The district spans all or parts of 19 counties, including Hancock, which was drawn into the district this year. With the incumbent, Republican Mike Pence, running for governor, the seat is wide open to three newcomers.
Republican Luke Messer, Democrat Brad Bookout and Libertarian Rex Bell are vying for the seat. But with only one formal debate among them and boundaries stretching from Muncie to the Ohio River, all acknowledge it’s been hard to reach potential voters.
