Buffalo newspaper says Scott eyeing Skelton seat
State Senator Delbert Scott, R-Lowry City, whose district includes Barton County, may seek the voters' approval for a trip to Washington, according to a speculative article in this week's Buffalo Reflex.
In an article examining what may be coming in 2006, Reflex reporter Pat Campbell writes, "The political scene will be interesting in 2006, particularly if longtime Democratic congressman Ike Skelton decides not to run again. Republican state senator Delbert Scott would probably jump into the race and could be the favorite. Dallas County Republican Alan Conner also plans to join the race."
