GOP, DFL to endorse candidates for Gaither seat

The DFL and Republican Party endorsing conventions for the special election in Senate District 43, to fill the seat being vacated by Sen. David Gaither, will be held this Saturday, October 8.

Democratic Farmer Labor Party
Senate District 43 Endorsing Convention
Wayzata Central Middle School, Plymouth
10:00 a.m.
Announced candidates: Terri Bonnof ("Uniting The Middle")
SD 43 DFL web site: http://www.sd43.org/

Republican Party of Minnesota
Senate District 43 Endorsing Convention
Hopkins North Junior High School, Minnetonka
8:30 a.m.
Announced candidates: Judy Johnson ("Common Sense at the Capitol")

I haven't heard when the special election will take place, but apparently it will be after the November 8 general election. In November, the Wayzata School District is holding a levy referendum and an election for three school board seats. The Minnetonka School District is also holding an election for three school board seats.
