The Republican endorsement race for State Senate in District 47 looks to be heating up with the apparent entry of Bruce Schwichtenberg into the race. Schwichtenberg, who has previously run (and lost) twice for Carver County Commissioner against Jim Ische, joins Kevin Masrud in challenging incumbent State Senator Julianne Ortman for the GOP nomination. A letter from Schwichtenberg announcing his candidacy can be found below:

[UPDATE]: Schwichtenberg has a website now.
