... That Reagan Republican president Jeff Ward will announce his candidacy for retiring state Rep. Frank Henderson's House District 3 seat at the organization's weekly luncheon meeting today.

And ... that Rep. Frank Henderson may be backing a third horse in this race. Stay tuned.
- Meanwhile, across town, County Clerk Jim Brannon will be speaking to Bjorn Handeen's Precinct 52 Republicans, as the dueling Republican luncheons continue for a 2nd week. Reagan Republicans meet at Fedora's; Precinct 52 R's at IHOP.
