District 9 candidates

Senate District 9 candidates Brandon Cavanaugh (left) and Ryan Mishler

ELKHART — Though two candidates are running for the State Senate District 9 seat, one of them being the incumbent, the campaign is one of the quieter ones. None of the candidates responded to interview requests.

Republican Ryan Mishler, 52, is president of a funeral home and was first elected to the Senate in 2004. He faces Democrat Brandon Cavanaugh, 29, a teacher and Army veteran. Both were unopposed in the primaries. This election is the first time in 12 years that Mishler has had a challenger.
