Name: Chad Behn, Republican

Office/District: State Senate District 24

Hometown: Boone

Profession: Farmer / County Supervisor

Why running for office: “To keep momentum in the caucus. Republicans have had control and they’ve come out with a strong aggressive platform and I want to make sure that we send good Republicans down there to continue to keep the momentum of the caucus.

“Jobs and tax structure. The tax climate right now is, we lure businesses with incentives rather than having a clean tax structure for business.”
