WILLMAR –– Calling himself a “moderate,” Willmar businessman Dave Baker said Friday he intends to challenge Rep. Mary Sawatzky, DFL-Willmar, this fall in the House District 17B race.

Baker, a Republican, said he had been actively recruiting candidates to run for the seat but when they all declined, he “started doing some soul searching” over the holidays and wondered if “this might be my time to take this chance.”
