He opposes Clearwater County Judge Paul Rasmussen, elected in 1992 and seeking a fourth term.

Holter of Bemidji who served 26 years as Beltrami County judge, appointed by Gov. Al Quie, was defeated in 2006 by his former law clerk, John Melbye.

After his defeat, Holter was denied by two different Minnesota Supreme Court justices from serving at the court's discretion as a "retired judge" since he had not retired but was defeated in an election.

While four judges technically serve as Beltrami-Clearwater County District Court judges, three are chambered in Bemidji and the fourth, Rasmussen, in Bagley.

Another Beltrami County District Court judge, Paul Benshoof, filed for re-election and thus far is unopposed.

In other filings, Sen. Rod Skoe, DFL-Clearbrook, filed Monday for re-election to his Senate 2 post, and his Republican opponent, Dennis Moser of Clearbrook, filed Tuesday.

In Senate 3, Dan McGuire of Baudette filed Tuesday as a Republican, joining Sen. Tom Saxhaug, DFL-Grand Rapids.

In House 2B, Republican David Hancock of Bemidji filed Tuesday. In House 3A, Republican Marv Ott of Grand Rapids filed Tuesday, joining Rep. Tom Anzelc, Balsam Township. In House 3B Carolyn McElfatrick of Deer River filed Tuesday, joining Rep. Loren Solberg, DFL-Grand Rapids.

In House 4A, Bemidji Mayor Richard Lehmann of Bemidji filed Tuesday as a Republican, joining Rep. John Persell, DFL-Bemidji.

Chip Cravaack of Lindstrom filed Monday as a Republican for Congress, joining U.S. Rep. Jim Oberstar, DFL-8th District.

There have been no additional filings for Beltrami County offices.

Filing for all offices closes Tuesday.
