“There’s certainly a lot of interest in Democratic candidates this year,” Baugh said. “There’s a lot of excitement.”

“I’m excited to be part of a Democratic team that promotes smart growth and open government,” Degner said.

“It’s a good year to be a Democrat,” Wiens said. “The Democratic Party is more people-oriented, and our campaigns this year will show that.”
