Editorial: Our picks for the Legislature - Gimse, Falk, Sawatszky, and Urdahl
Redistricting in 2012 brought some incumbents together and new challengers in legislative races across west central Minnesota. Here are our endorsements in a number of those races.
Senate 17: This race pairs two incumbents: Sen. Joe Gimse, R-Willmar, and Sen. Lyle Koenen, DFL-Clara City. Gimse, 55, has served six years in the Senate. Koenen was elected in a special election following Sen. Gary Kubly's death and had previously served 10 years in the House.
