Democratic candidates challenging White, Flanigan

The Joplin area will see something during this election year it has not seen for a long time- general election races for state legislature seats.

Two Democratic filings have taken place in just the last few minutes.

Michael Jarrett, Carl Junction, filed 10 minutes ago to run as a Democratic candidate for the 163rd District state representative seat currently held by Tom Flanigan, R-Carthage.

Charles "Hugh" Shields, Joplin, will run for the 161st District seat currently held by Bill White, R-Joplin.
