Laurie Halverson, a former public affairs professional with Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Minnesota, recently filed with the Campaign Finance Board to challenge Wardlow for the House District 38B seat.
For former DFL Sen. Jim Carlson, it was a matter of a little reflection and time to “lick my wounds” before he knew he was ready to run again for the state Senate. Carlson, who served one term in the chamber, was ousted last fall by Republican newcomer Ted Daley as part of a massive GOP wave that saw the party take control of both the House and Senate for the first time in nearly four decades.
Sen. Steve Dille will probably not be bored when his 24 years at the Legislature officially come to an end next month. The first item on the 65-year-old Dassel Republican's post-Senate agenda is completing a biography of his grandfather.
When the 87th Minnesota Legislature convenes in January, it will seat 60 new members - the third-highest total of the past 40 years. Fifty-four of those new faces will be Republicans.
In 2004, Jim Carlson took on first-term Republican Rep. Lynn Wardlow in House District 38B. The race was a decidedly uphill battle.
After losing by a mere 519 votes in 2008 to DFLer Mike Obermueller, math teacher and former state House Republican Rep. Lynn Wardlow didn’t rule out an attempt to win back his old seat representing Eagan.
Political candidates were out in force this morning at Eagan's annual Fourth of July parade; check out our gallery of images.
