Three Northland state legislators say they’re seeking another term.

State Rep. Jen Schultz announced on Monday she’ll seek a third two-year term, with a kickoff event scheduled for 3-5 p.m. Sunday at Blacklist Artisan Ales, 120 E. Superior St. She serves District 7A, which encompasses eastern Duluth neighborhoods.

State Rep. Liz Olson announced last week that she’ll seek a second term representing District 7B, the western side of Duluth.

Finally, State Rep. Mary Murphy told the News Tribune on Monday that she will run for a 22nd term. Murphy represents District 3B, which includes Hermantown, Two Harbors, townships north of Duluth and a small portion of Duluth proper.

All three incumbents are Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party members.
