INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Chuck Brewer gathered in front of Republicans in Indianapolis Tuesday night to concede the mayor’s race to Democrat Joe Hogsett.
“A few mins ago I called Joe Hogsett and congratulated him. He loves this city just as much as I do, and I offered him my support,” Brewer said.
The Republican business owner — who owns a sandwich shop on Monument Circle — joked that he also offered food to Hogsett for his transition meetings.
In addition to thanking campaign workers, Brewer took a moment to remember poll worker Victor Risch, who died on his way to work the polls Tuesday.
