On Tuesday, August 14, 2012, the voters of District 20 upheld the endorsement of the Rice, Scott, and Le Sueur County Republican Conventions and have confirmed Mike Dudley of New Prague as the Republican nominee for State Senate. With 100% of the vote in, Dudley had an 87% to 13% margin over his opponent.
His victory is a victory for all District 20 voters who wish to send someone with common sense conservative values to St. Paul in November. Mike Dudley is a Northfield native and 15 year New Prague area resident. He recently retired from the FBI after a 26-year career. Dudley and his campaign have already knocked on over 12,000 doors in the district, and he plans to continue that energetic grassroots style of campaigning. Dudley also noted that his fundraising numbers have been very good so far.
