Gansert wins state Senate re-election bid

Heidi Gansert wins her re-election bid in state Senate in District 15, which includes Sun Valley. Challenger Wendy Jauregui-Jackins conceded on Facebook over the weekend. The race was a close one with Gansert taking home nearly 52 percent of the vote. Gansert’s win has wide-ranging implications because it prevents Democrats from having a veto-proof majority in both chambers.
