Good candidates are running

With the recent Re-districting and the recent changes in Candidates, I for one am proud of Paul Gazelka for making the decision to run for the New Senate District 9. As the old 12 Senate District was composed of Morrison County & Crow Wing, as his decision was being made we had discussed the possibilities, keeping his supporters in Morrison was only one part of that desicion. One of the largest pieces to the change was not leaving Crow Wing County Republicans high & dry, I am extremely proud Carrie Rudd made the choice to run as our candidate,she was the deciding factor in Gazelka’s move. Crow Wing County has a candidate who represents us extremely well & Morrison County, as well as the New 9th Senate District, has the same. I am proud of both candidates, and best of all,my relatives in Staples & Wadena will have a true leader,who I am thankful to call my friend.
