UPDATE: Two more candidates join District 5 commissioner's race
Earlier this month, Donnelly native Bennett Smith was giving the student speech at the University of Minnesota, Morris Commencement. Last week, he filed to challenge Republican incumbent Torrey Westrom in the District 11A House race.
Smith is the third Stevens County-area candidate to commit to a run for state office this spring. Dave Holman, of the Independence Party, has filed to run in District 11A. Westrom, of Elbow Lake, filed for reelection earlier this week.
