Short suspends Indy mayor campaign, throws support behind Hogsett

INDIANAPOLIS - Democrat Frank Short announced Wednesday he's suspending his campaign for mayor of Indianapolis.

Short is a Washington Township trustee and previously served three terms as an Indianapolis city-county councilor.

He said Wednesday that he would endorse his longtime friend Joe Hogsett in the city's mayoral race, adding that Hogsett's "crime fighting experience makes him the best person  to lead our city and ensure that it will be a safe place to live and raise our families."

Short added that a primary could divide the party and might put Democrats' mayoral chances in jeopardy.
