(Michigan City, IN) - The former mayor of Michigan City failed in his bid for a political comeback last night. Ron Meer finished last in the Democratic Party primary for State Senate from District 4.
Incumbent Rodney Pol, Jr. of Chesterton won the party’s nomination with 44-percent of the vote. Deb Chubb and Todd Connor, both from Michigan City, received over 20-percent of the vote. Meer had seven percent of the vote. District 4 includes Michigan City and much of northern Porter County.
Though Meer had seven percent of the total vote, he received over 16-percent of the La Porte County vote.
In his bid for a third term as Michigan City's mayor, Meer was defeated by Republican Duane Parry by less than 100 votes in 2019.
