The timeline is set for the special election process to replace Sen Dick Day.
Dec 28th 6pm The endorsing convention will be held at the Elk's Club in Faribault. Each candidate will have a chance to address the delegates and make their case about being the best candidate. It is important to note that the delegates and alternates for the convention will be those elected in Feb 2008.
Dec 23rd-Dec 29th Filing season is open for the race. Candidates need to understand that if more than one candidate files with the Sec State as a Republican, there will have to be a primary election as well.
