While some expected a large field of candidates to run for the 3rd congressional district seat following the retirement of Rep. Vern Ehlers, it hasn't worked out that way. So far, Terri Land, Dick Posthumus, Ken Sikkema, Mark Jansen, Brian Calley, and Jerry Zandstra have all said no.
Only Rep. Justin Amash, who announced the day before Ehlers officially retired, is currently running. The most conspicuous possibility who has not announced his intentions yet is Senator Bill Hardiman. A couple state reps are also still possibilities.
