One hops into 15B race 

Larry Schumacher reports that Josh Behling has filed to run for the state rep 15B seat currently held by Rep. Larry Haws. Given that Haws has endorsed Al Franken for U.S. Senate, the space in the center for a candidate to run against him is quite wide. (Heck, even Tarryl won't take Franken's checks.)

Behling is co-chair of the SD 15 Republicans BPOU, a young guy with good energy and trying to learn to blog. (Someone get me his blog address please, as I cannot find it.) I don't know him very well yet, but Mrs. S was familiar with him from the Jeff Johnson (SD 15 Senate) race and thinks highly of him, and my contacts with Jeff indicate he would make a good candidate.
