The Democratic Party has gone to the bench and re-drawn its line up. Dave Newquist is out and Al Hoerth is in. Here's the story:
Local Democrats are making some changes to the November ballot.
Al Hoerth, a retired Aberdeen teacher, is the party's new District 3 state Senate candidate. He takes the spot of Ted Kneebone of Aberdeen, who is now seeking one of two District 3 House seats.
Hoerth and Republican opponent Isaac Latterell of Aberdeen are both political newcomers. Latterell defeated veteran Sen. Duane Sutton, R-Aberdeen, in the June primary.
Kneebone and Tom Black of Aberdeen are now the Democratic candidates for District 3 House of Representatives. They face incumbent Rep. Al Novstrup, R-Aberdeen, and his son, David Novstrup, also an Aberdeen Republican. Incumbent Rep. Larry Frost, R-Aberdeen, is not seeking re-election.
