This is mainly a notation to the Democrat legislative candidates out there, since many of them are placeholders, but you only have 1 week left to withdraw. If you fail to do so, your name will remain on the ballot.
August 7th marks the deadline for candidate withdrawals, with candidate replacements having to come in by August 14th.
Republicans have to contend with the replacement of Todd Schlekeway on the ballot, since he’s announced he will not be a candidate due to his new employment. That replacement will be interesting in and of itself, given the very conservative background of many of the GOP precinct committeemen and women who will make that choice.
For those Democrats who have already announced that they’re abandoning ship, they already have those seats that they have to replace candidates for in District 14 and 16 senate contests, and in house contests for District 10, District 16, and at least another one or two that I’ve heard about.
