Two local freshman lawmakers will be facing challenges to their re-election bids next year.
Republican Linda Little has filed petitions to challenge Democratic State Senator Andy Manar (muh-NAR’) in the 48th Senate district. Little currently serves on the Macon County Board.
In the 96th House District, Democratic incumbent Sue Scherer has filed to run for a second term, but she is facing a Democratic primary opponent, Gina Lathan of Springfield. Republican Mike Bell has also filed to run in the 96th and will face the winner of the Scherer-Lathan primary.
