UPDATE: I suppose I haven’t been following this race closely. Linda Pritchett, Mable Thomas and Elijah Tutt are running as well.
Nikema Williams made it official today, announcing her campaign for Senate District 39.
If you’ve spent time at the Capitol or even been marginally involved with Democratic Party politics for the last 12 years you know Carter’s mom.
Her website is here.
A date for the special election has not been set and it is unclear how many candidates will run. It is also hard to imagine anyone other than Williams being the odds-on favorite for the race.
