South Bend, Ind – South Bend’s Republican nominee for the Mayoral race Sean Haas is gearing up for November’s general election.

Over 11,000 votes were cast in the Democratic primary for the seat to be Mayor of South Bend.

Haas was joined at the St. Joseph County GOP headquarters with supporters to kickoff November’s general election. ‘

Haas will run against South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s former Chief of Staff James Mueller.

Haas released a statement Tuesday evening congratulating Mueller on his primary election victory and looking ahead to November’s election.

Before addressing supporters at the St. Joseph County GOP event Haas spoke with ABC57 News.

“I expect a challenge it’s gonna be hard fought historically we know what South Bend is and it’s traditionally democratic that doesn’t deter me in any way I feel like I rise to challenges so that I know that the next couple of months are going to be difficult but I’m really willing to put in the work and come every day to work so I’m looking forward to it,” Haas said.
