Special election to be held November 22

You read it here first, sports fans.

Terri Bonoff and Judy Johnson will face the voters in Senate District 43 in a November 22 special election called by Gov. Tim Pawlenty. If a special primary is necessary, it will be held on Tuesday, November 1. Since the DFL and Republican parties have endorsed their candidates, a primary election is unlikely unless two or more candidates emerge from a third party.

Both candidates now have about 40 days to execute their ground game: lit drop, door knock, phone call, put up signs, shake hands, kiss babies, and state their cases on web sites and in the blogosphere. Debate, anyone?
