The largest city in today's Senate District 27 special election is Woodward. But Woodward sits in another House district, so those voters will not directly feel the pinch of losing representation. What Woodward voters should be aware of, is that the regional voice for the Great Northwest is already lacking volume. Giving Casey Murdock another 'feather in his cap' should not be the highest priority of the region.
If the voters choose someone else, they still give Murdock the opportunity to keep collecting his govt. paycheck, legislative vote, and ability for writing legislation. He can file again for that senate seat when the next term comes up. Dr. Carolyn McLarty is polling strongest in this special election. There is no primary runoff election, so the winner may likely advance with well under the 50% they would otherwise need.
