State Representative Rick Niemeyer, State Senator Sue Landske

Republican 11th District State Representative Rick Niemeyer of Lowell has announced he is running for the State Senate seat long held by Cedar Lake Republican 6th District State Senator Sue Landske. In November, Landske announced she had been diagnosed with lung cancer, and recently said she would not be seeking re-election. Landske was elected to  the State Senate in 1984, taking over the seat held by Rick Niemeyer's father, Ernie Niemeyer, after Ernie Niemeyer became a Lake County Commissioner. Both Landske's and Niemeyer's terms end after this year.
