Special Election Filing Deadline 15 Jan 13

Today (TUE) is the deadline for candidates to file for the Minnesota House seat vacated by Democrat Terry Morrow. The filing period for the District 19A seat ends at 5pm today, and the special election for the seat will be held on Tuesday, February 12th. Republicans have endorsed former Minnesota Lawmaker Al Quist for the seat, and the endorsed Independence Party candidate is Tim Gieseke. Democrats hold their endorsement convention this Saturday, but that will be after the deadline for candidates to withdraw from the race, meaning that a primary election will be held on Tuesday, January 29th. There are 4 DFL candidates that have filed for the seat, which represents all of Nicollet County as well as small portions of Blue Earth and Le Sueur Counties. Candidates may file with their county auditor or the Minnesota Secretary of State office.
