The special election to replace Rep. Terry Morrow of St. Peter is likely to be a three way race according to First District Independence Party Chairman Mark Meyer.

“A couple of people have indicated their interest in running for the open seat on the Independence Party line. The current dissatisfaction with both traditional parties over the deadlock in Washington means that voters are looking for alternatives. The Independence Party values of putting Minnesota first and party politics last resonates with people," he said.

Meyer expects Gov. Mark Dayton to declare the time frame for the special election right after Christmas, with formal announcements of candidates to follow shortly thereafter. He believes a three-way race and short election period means a level playing field and provides an excellent opportunity for voters to choose the Independence Party candidate as their best option.

The new District 19A is a centrist district and has been represented by either traditional party over the years.
