Former Klamath County Commissioner Al Switzer is running for State Representative, District 56. Current Klamath County Museum Manager Todd Kepple is pursuing the District 28 State Senate seat. The announcements were made at a noon press conference Tuesday.
Senate candidate Dennis Linthicum and House candidate E. Werner Reschke will be the only two names on the May ballot.
Senator Doug Whitsett and Representative Gail Whitsett withdrew their names from the race the day after the filing deadline, clearing the way for Linthicum and Reschke to run unopposed.
Jonah Hakanson is taking steps to get his name on the November ballot to challenge Reschke as an unaffiliated candidate.
