If you were wondering what’s happening in upcoming elections, There’s been a little action in legislative filings in recent weeks.
Jim Stalzer is moving from the House to the Senate in District 11, replacing Senator Omdahl. Dan Kaiser has filed petitions to run again for the House.
Long-time Potter County GOP activist John Lake is joining Charlie Hoffman in running for a pair of open seats in District 23. I’d watch for more to come there, but Lake will be competitive.
In the Hills, Richard Mounce has filed in District 30, but the biggest news out west is that State Rep Jacqueline Sly has filed for State Senate in District 33 – signaling a primary election slugfest between she and State Senator Phil Jensen. That will be one to watch with likeable Sly coming off a win on education, versus the controversial Jensen who will likely be backed by fluorescent postcards attacking Sly in any manner possible.
