INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett easily won the Democratic primary on Tuesday, setting up his fall campaign for a third term against a wealthy Republican businessman to lead Indiana’s largest city.

Hogsett received 60% of the vote with about 75% of vote centers reporting to defeat state Rep. Robin Shackleford and four other Democratic challengers, according to unofficial vote tallies compiled by the Marion County election board.

Former City-County Councilman Jefferson Shreve pumped at least $2.5 million of his own money into his mayoral campaign and won 66% of the vote to defeat political commentator and attorney Abdul-Hakim Shabazz and two other Republican rivals.

Shreve’s campaign has focused criticism on Hogsett over crime in the city, including higher murder rates in recent years, and pledges to better support the city’s police department. Shreve has owned a self-storage business and has real estate investments.

Hogsett says he is seeking re-election in November to complete goals disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, pointing to violence-reduction efforts, citywide infrastructure improvements and resuming business and residential development in the city’s downtown area.

Hogsett won the mayoral races by wide margins in 2015 and 2019 as Democrats gained political dominance in the city. He is trying to become the longest-serving mayor of Indianapolis since Republican Bill Hudnut served four terms from 1976 to 1991.
