Top 2 Primary Ends Willard Candidacy

Dean Willard's attempt to finally have a Democrat representing the 5th LD in the State House came to an end Tuesday. Willard finished third to incumbent Republican Glenn Anderson and 2008 Democratic Challenger David Spring in last Tuesday's top 2 primary. Willard, in his first run for public office was ahead on fundraising and endorsements--he pretty much campaigned against Anderson rather than Spring, a candidate who generally runs on a shoestring budget.
Democrat Greg Hoover is challenging incumbent Republican Jay Rodne for the other State House position.
