In our state, we have the top two primary system. That means that it is possible that when the primary is over, you do not have a Republican and Democrat candidate (which is what a primary is for), but instead, you have two people from the same party. The primary for Lt. Governor ended with two Democrats who will be on the November ballot – one is quite liberal (Heck) and the other is extremely progressive (Liias).
Joshua Freed ran for Governor, but Culp won that nomination, so Freed is now able to run as a write-in for Lt. Gov, giving us a Republican option. It is certainly possible to do, because the two Democrats will likely split their votes, and Freed would only have to get about 40%. The drawback is that we have to get the word out, so please pass on the info.
Could use some advice on the non partisan positions. Thanks
If you want my discussion on those, I’ll be sending out an email tomorrow morning that covers everything. If you want to give me your email address, I’ll add you to my list. I try not to fill your email box with a lot (rarely send one except during the legislative session and right around election time). I will not sell or give away the list, and I try to send only information rather than campaigning. If you want to be added, send an email to email@example.com. ~Ruth Peterson Lewis County State Committeewoman
