Wilhelm running for third time on GOP slate in District 13B


WILLMAR -- Four years ago, when Bonnie Wilhelm first ran for the state Legislature, one of her challenges as a new candidate was building name recognition.

This time around it's different.

"When I go to the door, people know who I am," she said.

Next week Wilhelm, a Republican, gets her third shot at unseating DFLer Al Juhnke for the District 13B seat in the Minnesota House of Representatives.

She says she's "ready to get in there."
