What was kind of a sleepy afternoon just woke up politically. Term-limited Republican State Representative Nancy Rasmussen just filed to run for the State Senate against former Judge & current State Senator Art Rusch:
… which brings the number of Republican primaries for the State Senate that I’m counting to about 8:
District 6 – Otten/Latterell
District 12 – Curd/Steele
District 14 – Zikmund/Zellmer
District 17 – Rusch/Rasmussen
District 21 – Qualm/Tobin
District 23 – Breitling/Nielson
District 29 – Cammack/Jorgenson
District 33 – Dave Johnson/Janet Jensen
This might not be all. I know 2 Republicans are looking at D27 Senate. It’s not clear if Jeff Partridge is running again yet in 34, where Mike Diedrich has filed.
On the Dem side, supposedly Pat Kirschmann (D) is going to take on Reynold Nesiba (D) in D15 Senate.
And none of this should give rise to the thought of people being done. There are probably others out there just waiting to pounce.
Update 3/20/20 – It is noted in the comment section that it was announced today that State Representative Pat Kirschmann has passed away.
