Questions still surround what will happen in Legislative District 8, with the death of one of the candidates.
And Secretary of State Al Jaeger has asked for an Attorney General’s opinion.
One of the Republican candidates for the state House of Representatives position – David Andahl – passed away suddenly. Absentee voting had already begun, and Andahl’s name remains on the ballot.
Jaeger said he had an understanding of what the law said, but a number of questions have been raised. His letter to Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem asks some specific questions.
