Beck for House 92

Doug Beck has been tapped to take over for Rep. Genise Montecillo.  Montecillo announced a few weeks ago that she would not be running for re-election after all. It’s too late for her to drop from the primary ballot.  She’s unopposed for the primary.  After winning the primary, she will officially drop out, and the Democrats will replace her for the general election race.  Republican Daniel Bogle is running for the seat.

House 92 is a Democratic district that shouldn’t be in play with the right Democratic candidate.  And early indications are that Beck fits the bill to hold the seat.  Beck is a journeyman pipe fitter, and a member of the Affton School Board.

Beck started his candidate committee yesterday, and Montecillo contributed $10K into it from her campaign account.
