There goes the judge

Congratulations to SD 43 favorite son Ron Abrams (R-Minnetonka) on his appointment to the Hennepin County court by Governor Tim Pawlenty.

Now that Rep. Jeff Johnson (R-Plymouth) is running for attorney general, former Sen. David Gaither (R-Plymouth) was appointed Governor Pawlenty's chief of staff, and Abrams will retire from the legislature at the end of the session, we now know for sure that no more SD 43 incumbents will be vacating their seats this year (unless the DFL endorsed candidate Sen. Terri Bonoff suddenly resigns!).

Minntelect tells this story by the numbers and makes some early election predictions.
