Candidate list set for seats in state House

The list of candidates for Republican and Democratic spots on the primary ballot is now set.

The deadline for filing nominating petitions for local and state offices was Monday.

With the state Supreme Court order requiring a new congressional redistricting plan, petition filing for U.S. House candidates has been moved back from March 6 to March 20.
