District 37 GOP endorses 3 candidates

Three individuals have been endorsed by District 37 Republicans to represent the party on the June primary ballot for the state legislature.

Sen. Rich Wardner, Rep. Vicky Steiner, and Dickinson Park Board President Mike Lefor have been selected, according to a release sent out last week.

Wardner has served in the Senate since 1999, and Steiner is seeking re-election to her second four-year term in the House of Representatives.

This is Lefor’s first bid for a term in the House. Lefor has been elected five times to the Park Board and also serves as chairman of the St. Joseph’s Hospital Board of Directors, though both terms expire in June.
