Candidates Being Chosen for Senate District 13 Seat
A special nominating convention has chosen state Rep. Julian Garrett as the Republican Party's nominee for Senate District 13. Garrett won the nomination Thursday night at a nominating convention in Indianola. The Democratic nominee will be chosen Monday at a nominating convention at the Martensdale-St. Marys Community School District office. The nominees from each party will go before voters in a Nov. 19 special election. The position became open when Kent Sorenson, a Republican from Milo, resigned after allegations were made that he committed ethics violations.
