Arnie Johnsrud of Ahnapee has withdrawn from the race for the Democratic nomination to represent the 1st District in the Assembly in Madison and has endorsed the candidacy of fellow Democrat Joe Majeski of Jacksonport. Majeski says he appreciates the endorsement.
Johnsrud lost in the Democratic primary for the 1st District Assembly seat in 2012. He had declared his intention to run again last December.
Majeski is now the sole Democrat in the race. There are five Republicans running.
Candidates have until May 23rd to file for the seat.
