Big kudos and many thanks to those who have put their hats in the ring to run for local/state political office. It takes a lot of work to run a campaign and a lot of courage to put your name on the line with very little thanks or financial remuneration (in most cases).
Yesterday, 3/12/18, was the deadline for candidates to file for state legislative seats. Below is the latest list of local Great Falls area candidates who have filed. A few points we found worth noting:
- There are no uncontested seats in either the Senate or House races.
- Senate District 13 includes a Libertarian candidate.
- No primaries in the Senate races.
- A 2-way GOP primary in HD19, 3-way GOP primary in HD21, and a 3-way Democrat primary in HD25.
