“One of the Legislature’s experts on environmental issues, longtime Sen. Steve Henson, D-Tucker, was instrumental in fighting off a Republican attempt to erode protections on stream buffers. He’s equally solid in his support for protecting worker rights. Henson’s experience makes this race no contest.”

“In Senate District 41, Democratic incumbent Steve Henson is challenged by Republican first-time candidate Frank Auman, a businessman with a finance background. While impressive and smart, Auman doesn’t make a real argument for replacing Henson, who is highly effective in the Senate and has shown a real commitment to environmental protection and health care reform.”
