Morrow to Help Cover Cost of 19A Special Election

Posted: Updated:
ST. PETER, MINN. -

Former Representative for district 19A, Terry Morrow says he will help fund the cost of the special election to fill his seat.
 
Morrow announced in December that he was taking a job with a policy firm in Chicago, and would resign from office.

He ran unopposed in his 2012 re-election.

Morrow says he will wait until after the election before he decides on a dollar amount.

The exact cost of the special election is yet to be determined, but estimates for the total cost have been reported in the $70,000 range.

Voters will choose between Republican Allen Quist, DFLer Clark Johnson and Independence Party candidate Tim Gieseke next week on February 12th.
