House District 48A – Eden Prairie, Chanhassen, Minnetonka
Laurie Pryor (DFL) vs. Mary Shapiro (R)
Laurie Pryor (DFL) has just won House District 48A with 51.66% of the vote. Pryor’s opponent, Republican Mary Shapiro, received 48.16%.
Alpha News reported: Rep. Yvonne Selcer (DFL) won reelection in 2014 by just 41 votes, and in 2012 by about one percent as well. With her retirement, that leaves this highly competitive district without an incumbent advantage. Shapiro is a former Minneapolis school teacher, while Pryor is a longtime DFL activist. Spending is relatively even, at about $258,000 for Pryor, and $236,000 for Shapiro. (Anders Koskinen)
