A city official stopped at The Lebanon Enterprise office this week. When staff members joked with her about running for a state office, her reply was no, she wasn't interested.
"That's real politics," she said.
Based on what we've seen so far from the campaigns to fill the vacant District 14 State Senate seat, we're inclined to agree with her. District 14 includes Marion, Mercer, Nelson, Taylor and Washington counties.
