Hansen prevails in Primary Election over Olsen
In Tuesday night's beauty contest for the 23rd Legislative District's Position 2 seat, incumbent state Rep. Drew Hansen was easily besting Republican challenger James M. Olsen.
The race is a rematch of the contest from two years ago, when Hansen dispatched Olsen for the House seat.
In the first vote tally released for Tuesday's Primary Election, Hansen, a Democrat, had pulled in 61 percent of the vote. Olsen collected 38 percent of the vote.
With only two candidates in the race, Tuesday's election was an early indication of voters' preferences in the contest, but not much more. Under the state's "top two" primary system, both Hansen and Olsen will advance to the November ballot.
