STATEWIDE - Another democrat has joined the race for governor.

Former State Representative Diane Russell has announced her candidacy making her the seventh democrat to seek her parties nomination.

Russell also received high profile coverage when she spoke at the Democratic National Convention about proposed changes to the way our presidents are elected.

 

She said she wants to work for working class makers who aren't earning enough money.

 

Providing healthcare for all is another goal.
