The most interesting part of the nominating convention for the county commissioner position up for election next fall was that it was boring.

Barring Erik Landaas running into the room saying he changed his mind, no one expected anyone to challenge Karen for the nomination. This doesn’t mean a Democrat won’t end up filing against Karen (I guess one already has), but they would do so without the expressed support of the party organization.

Not that I’m saying that would matter, I think the conventions on their own are crap.

But, that nomination sure seems to matter. Jon Halvorson learned that in a much more conservative district just recently.
