State legislative leaders have announced that a lame-duck session will be held next week with hearings on Monday and vote potentially on Tuesday. District 1 State Senator Caleb Frostman says he has not seen any bills but would be against any move of the presidential primary to a date between the February and April elections in 2020. He is also concerned about a potential bill that would limit the new governor’s powers.
According to the Madison Capital Times, Republican State Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald stated he believed that Supreme Court Justice Dan Kelly would benefit from changing the election date due to turn out for a Democratic primary race.
