Your Voice: voters feeling election fatigue

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — has Indiana’s fiery Republican U.S. Senate race burned out voters before May’s primary?

Because the candidates in the race are pulling no punches against each other, quite a few Republicans say they’re starting to feel election fatigue.

“I will be glad frankly when the primary is over so we can really dedicate our energies to electing a republican senator who will serve us very well for six years in Washington D.C.,” said voter Duane Beals.

The campaign season feels a bit longer this year to constituents in St. Joseph County.

Four longtime Republicans talked to ABC 57 News on Wednesday about the heated three-way rivalry.

“Some of the things they say, while they’re not untrue,” said Beals. “They’re not 100 percent correct either.”

They say, they’d rather hear the candidates focus on the issues.

“I don’t like negative campaigning,” said voter Christine Murdock. “I think you should tell what you can do.”

While the Braun, Messer and Rokita have accused each other of being critical of the President, voters think that’s okay.

“You have to be able to take criticism,” said voter Emee Gaither Miller. “There’s nothing wrong with that.”

They hope the nominee can take the harsh criticism that was thrown around during the primary because they want Republican representative that can turn the seat red come November.

“We are ready to work, we roll up our sleeves and we do a lot of work in this county,” said voters Charlotte Beals. “So were hoping we have a wonderful election and we’ll be so excited when the Republicans win.”
