      Really? I can’t imagine who. Larry is pretty popular here, and I haven’t heard hide nor hair of one. Not saying it can’t happen, but I think they’d face a battle that was uphill all the way.

    Lora Hubbel is challenging Deb Peters in District 9 Senate. I hope the rumors of a Tideman primary are true. His record on LIFE is terrible. Both him and Peters need to go.

      I had heard that early, but she was out trying to recruit someone up to a week or so ago, who backed out because they were of the opinion that Deb did a pretty good job for the GOP.

      Has she said she’s running?

    Former Belle Fourche middle school principal Karen Doolittle is circulating a petition to challenge Sam Marty in the 28B republican primary.

        I don’t know her I guess, but obviously not if she is circulating a petition to run as a republican.

  3. Kelly Lieberg

    I thought the Republicans were doing a bang up job ? Seems there’s a few out there that think they can do a better job.
