Democratic Senator's Resignation Could Impact Balance of Power in Legislature
AIR DATE: February 22, 2012
Democratic State Senator Sheila Leslie has resigned her seat to run in a different district. Leslie leaves District 1 and will now run in District 15 setting up a race with Republican Sen. Greg Brower. Leslie bought a home Brower's district last year and says she is confident she can beat him in a district where voter registration is an even split. Leslie's decision to resign and run in Brower's district could have a big impact on which party controls the Senate in the 2013 legislative session. Face to Face Host, Jon Ralston joins us to talk about the Leslie-Brower race.
