The Trent Humphries campaign is reporting that on Tuesday they filed 710 signatures with the Secretary of State. The minimum number for LD 26 is 470 so the campaign is confident with their numbers. The people at the Secretary of State’s office did remark that signatures were coming in much slower than two years ago. Look for a rush at the last minute or possibly for some candidates to miss the mark.
The Al Melvin campaign was the first to file in the state. Marilyn Zerull turned in her signatures in early May. The Democrat candidates only need 375 signatures and Don Jorgensen has already submitted his.
