Prediction: Mayoral Races

New Haven
Byrd got the kiss of death endorsement for Republican candidates. The newspaper endorsed Byrd based on McDonald being the more vocal opponent of county consolidation. Most New Haven residents are closer to being in line with McDonald on that issue.

Prediction: McDonald

Fort Wayne
On the Democratic ticket there is no debate. Henry is the only viable choice on the ticket.

Prediction: Henry

The Republican ticket for Mayor is the main event for the Allen county primary and most arguably in the state of Indiana. In this race Peters started with a large head start being the county commissioner. Area pundits (other than me) say that Kelty has out-worked Peters, that he has the momentum and that the experience factor isn't motivating people to the polls. People are being motivated by Harrison Square and the smoking ordinance.

Prediction: Kelty

The JG is endorsing any candidate that favors consolidation, there is no doubt about that. Kudos to Mayor McDonald for actually looking out for the people he represents. If only we had leaders in Fort Wayne who did that.

I don't have a dog in this hunt, being a former Ft. Wayner, but from the outside looking in, irrespective of the blogosphere, (which seems really pro-Kelty) I think a lot of folks may get a surprise tomorrow.
