Wesselhoft Withdraws From SD43 Race
Rep. Paul Wesselhoft, the first to announce as a Republican candidate for Senate District 43, today withdrew in a surprise move.
His withdrawal came after a Del City political neophyte filed as a Republican, and as two Democrats filed for the seat, being vacated by Jim Reynolds. Late this afternoon, another Republican filed.
