MARQUETTE, MI--   An Ironwood man is running as a Democrat for Michigan’s 110th legislative district.

Lawrence Dale is a businessman and Vietnam veteran. He says if elected, he would put the interests of the district’s constituents first.

Dale intends to run against current Republican Representative Greg Markkanen for the seat.

And a Negaunee man is running for the First District congressional seat currently held by Republican Jack Bergman.

Democrat Dana Ferguson says he’ll work to improve access to reliable rural healthcare.

Both candidates will have to win their party’s primary in August to advance to the November election.
