Shields in House 11

The House 11 HRCC-recruited candidate Jeff Penland withdrew Monday and is throwing his support behind Brenda Shields.  The current (term-limited) Rep, Galen Higdon, is Shields’ treasurer.

Shields still faces two Republican opponents, but it signals the start of a Republican coalescing behind Shields.  She’s considered their strongest and best chance to hold this Dem-leaning district in a tough election year.
