Special Primary Results 28 Mar 12

A special Primary Election was held Tuesday to narrow down the list of candidates for the District 20 state Senate seat formerly held by the late Senator Gary Kubly. The top vote-getter among the 2 Democrats that filed for the seat was State Representative Lyle Koenen of Clara City, who received 1,874 votes to John Schultz of Correll’s 947 votes. Koenen will now face off against Republican Gregg Kulberg of rural Hector and the Independence Party’s Leon Greenslit of Olivia in the April 10th Special Election for the seat. The winner of that race will complete the remaining 7 months of Kubly’s term.
