Many expressed interest, but three candidates emerged from a party-selection primary and will square off in a late January election replace Republican Dick Day who resigned the seat in order to become a lobbyist for slot-machine interests.

This race will be fun not only because of its potential for a party switch but because there is a strong viable third party candidate.

Republicans nominated Mike Parry, a Waseca businessman. Democrats, or in Minnesota, the Democratic Farm-Labor Party, is backing Jason Engbrecht, a St. Olaf College instructor. The Independence Party, which has a history of strong showings in this maverick state has nominated perhaps the most politically connected candidate, three-term Waseca mayor Roy Srp. No, that last name is not a typo.
