Legislators have begun to announce their plans for re-election or retirement.  As you know, State Representatives must run for office every two years, and State Senators every four years.  That means all 100 State Representatives will have to run for re-election in November, and half (even numbered districts) of the 50 State Senators are up for re-election.  

Anyone wishing to run for legislative office must file their paperwork by 5 pm. on Friday, March 18.  So after that date we'll know which legislators have opponents, and which legislators are calling it quits.  So far the following legislators have said they will not seek re-election: Representatives Josh Byrnes, Ron Jorgensen, John Kookier, Linda Miller, Brian Moore, Kraig Paulsen, Quentin Stanerson, and Sally Stutsman and Senator Dick Dearden.
