EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – Vanderburgh County voters will have at least one race in this May’s primary.

Wednesday was the first day candidates in Indiana could officially sign up to run for this year’s election.

Vanderburgh County Commissioner Cheryl Musgrave was one of the first to sign on the dotted line.

She is seeking re-election.

However, she will have a challenger.

Fellow Republican Gabriel Whitley also filed to run for the office.

When speaking about issues Wednesday, Musgrave touted her involvement in helping to improve county roads.

Whitley fired back saying the current commissioners haven’t done enough.

Musgrave and Whitley were not the only people to file in Vanderburgh County.

County Recorder Debbie Stucki, County Clerk Carla Hayden, and County Coroner Ted Lockyear also filed for re-election.
