Del. Christopher B. Shank posted the following statement Thursday night on his Facebook page to say he's challenging state Sen. Donald F. Munson for his seat.
WASHINGTON COUNTY -- State Del. Christopher B. Shank will take on incumbent state Sen. Donald F. Munson in this year's Republican primary.
Munson said Shank met with him for a few minutes Thursday to tell him about his candidacy, which Shank plans to publicly announce Jan. 8 in a campaign event.
"That's a common courtesy that any good human being would do," Munson said of the brief meeting.
Thursday night, Shank confirmed his intentions through a message posted on his Facebook page.
Other local Republicans have said in recent days that they've been invited to a Jan. 8 campaign event Shank is holding.
