Huser Primary Challenger Drops Out
Looks like Larry Grafton of the Painters & Allied Trades (my union) has dropped his primary challenge to Rep. Geri Huser (D-Altoona), one of the "six pack" who opposed labor's priority bills last year.
Grafton's name is off the Tuesday (4:11 PM) update of the statewide candidate's list at the Secretary of State's site. Anyone know the score?
Also out: Grinnell city council member Larry Wilson, who filed on the GOP side against Rep. Eric Palmer (D-Oskaloosa) in House 75. Wilson seems to have deferred to the other Republican, retired Marine Gen. Guy Vander Linden.
The dropout deadline is 5 p.m. today; opponents have until Friday to challenge petitions.
