Schellinger Concedes Defeat
Upon further reflection, Jim Schellinger decided it was in the best interest of the Democratic Party not to closely examine how Jill Long Thompson won enough votes in Lake County to erase his lead and take a 6000-plus vote lead. The question now turns to who will be Thompson's running mate. Fort Wayne Observed's Mitch Harper suggests former House Speaker John Gregg as a solid choice. Harper is a Republican who served with Gregg in the Indiana House.
