Democrats in Monroe Co. 21st Legislative District Chose Preferred Candidate

Democrats in Monroe County's 21st Legislative District have chosen Victor Sanchez -- not former TV reporter Rachel Barnhart -- as their preferred candidate for the seat this fall.

WHAM1180's Bob Lonsberry reports the decision came after an unusual change in the rules that allowed all-day voting ahead of last night's meeting to break last week's tie vote.

The district includes the Beechwood and North Winton neighborhoods.

Barnhart could still try to force a primary in June.

She has lost three previous runs for political office. Sanchez is an activist who has worked on the campaigns of two of her opponents.
