Incumbent Stover to face Fosle
By Brandon Stahl

Sometimes, all it takes is a little walking to get votes. Or in Jay Fosle’s case, a lot of walking.

The 46-year-old said he spent the last few months going door to door in nearly every neighborhood of the 5th District, which covers the wide-sprawling area of West Duluth. It seemed to work as he and incumbent Russell Stover will go head-to-head in the general election.

Fosle said that to win that election he’s hoping to take the votes that went to Allan Beaulier, who finished third.

“Those are people that clearly didn’t want to vote for Russ,” Fosle said.

Fosle, a mechanic for the Duluth public schools, said that while he and Stover are friends, what separates the two candidates is “common sense.” He said it was his frustration with Stover that got him into the race.

“I think he’s a little too comfortable if he’s starts telling stuff like that,” he said.

Stover, who was at an election party at Carmody’s Irish Pub when the results were announced, said he’s not comfortable at all. Even as the incumbent in the district, he’s worried about the primary results, Stover said.

“You never take anything for granted,” he said.
