Republican county commissioners Jeff Heppler and Roger Tuinier will run for reelection. Thus five of eleven commissioners are running for reelection. Four are running for state rep, and two are retiring.
Meanwhile, former commissioner John Gisler is running for district 8. He deferred to fellow commissioner David Maturen in 2012 when they ended up in the same district. Gisler seems to be popular with both the establishment and the Tea Party, and is likely a solid favorite in the district.
