FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- While Senator Joe Donnelly ran unopposed for U.S. senate, many Democrats are turning toward the election in November. 

"He already has a proven track record of standing up for Hoosiers, not just Democrats, all Hoosiers, and representing as well," said Misti Meehan, the chairwoman for the Allen County Democratic Party. 

Democratic congressional candidate, Courtney Tritch won Tuesday's primaries by a landslide. 

"She's already built relationships, and I am very hopeful that the results continue to go in her favor," Meehan said. 

But some voters were surprised by Tritch's views on gun control. 

"She always talks about responsible reform, background checks and those things. That doesn't mean taking anyone's guns away from anyone, and I think that has kind of surprised people," Meehan said. 

But Meehan said November could prove to be a competitive race. 

"We'll see once the debates start and then people can kind of hone in on the differences between the two candidates. With that level of office we'll see debates in the future and we'll be able to judge for ourselves and see where those policy differences lie," she said. 

FOX 55 will continue to have campaign coverage leading up to the November election.
