House 2B: Hancock ousts three-term Sailer
The people wanted something different, says Dave Hancock, the new House 2B representative.
Hancock, a Republican from Bemidji, ousted Rep. Brita Sailer, DFL-Park Rapids, who was seeking a fourth term to her House 2B seat.
"All in all, I think the people said we want a little change -- we don't want business as usual," Hancock said Friday. "We want to make government a little bit more responsive, a little more attuned to the people's needs."
