Larson and Graves move on to County District 2 race in November


WILLMAR -- Richard Larson and Bill Graves were the top two vote-getters in Tuesday's primary race for Kandiyohi County's second district commissioner race.

Larson, the incumbent, and Graves, a political newcomer, will face off in the general election Nov. 4.

The third candidate, Paul Hoffer, was eliminated from contention.

Larson, who was first elected to the Kandiyohi County Board in 1997, received more than twice as many votes as Graves or Hoffer.
