First Official Challenger for 58th District Seat Announces Candidacy

Jackson County Attorney Sharee Lagenstein is set to make a run at outgoing State Senator Dave Luechtefeld’s seat in the coming election. Lagenstein made the announcement Wednesday. Senator Luechtefeld has held the 58th seat for 20-years, and has said that he will not seek re-election. Lagenstein is running as a Republican, and could face a Democratic Challenger out of her own county, as former lieutenant Governor and Carbondale native Sheila Simon is also reportedly considering a run for the seat.
