TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - There are several interesting races to look out for in Tippecanoe County this May.

The deadline to file was Feb. 9 at noon. 

So far, some of the most interesting races include the Tippecanoe County Sheriff and Prosecutor. 

Incumbent Sheriff Barry Richard faces West Lafayette Police Chief Jason Dombkowski and Sheriff's Lieutenant John "Woody" Ricks.

All three candidates have agreed to particpate in a debate on WLFI. We are still arranging the details of the debate, but will announce them once they are determined.

Incumbent Prosecutor Patrick Harrington faces Earl McCoy in the Republican Primary.

McCoy has been involved with law in Tippecanoe County since 1996. He currently owns his own law firm and says the majority of his cases include criminal defense and family law.

Harrington has served as prosecutor for the past 11 years.

We will bring you profiles of these candidates as it gets closer to the Primary Election in May.

There are several other contested races, a full list can be found here.
