And House District 7 just turned into a primary..


Mike Fossum

I’m in the Brookings GOP meeting this morning, thinking it was going to be relatively announcement free…  And out of the blue up popped another candidate for District 7 State House Mike Fossum; turning a race where it was going to be nice to have two strong candidates (Reed and Pitts) to legislative primary.

This could mean serious trouble for House Minority Leader Spence Hawley, who would be facing the top two in that race. They’ll have had the advantage of campaigning this spring and raising their name ID – so look for District 7 House to be far more exciting than it was a month ago.
