Rep. Clark Planning To Retire

Item: It's in the cards, Clark retiring: Hayden representative has served 7 terms/Mike Patrick, Press

More Info: In an exclusive interview Friday with The Press, Clark announced his retirement at the end of the current legislative session. The seven-term Republican from Hayden Lake, known to friends and foes as annoyingly cocky one moment and delightfully self-deprecating the next, demonstrated a little bit of both in summarizing his decision to retire.

Question: I'd guess that Hayden Councilwoman Geri DeLange would be interested in Clark's seat. She might be a Repub candidate. Can you think of any other R's who will run. Will the D's field a candidate?
