Lewis and Clark County Democratic chair says he won’t seek reelection

Chair of the Lewis and Clark County Democratic Central Committee and former state House of Representatives candidate Jacob Torgerson announced in a news release Tuesday he would not seek reelection to the committee’s leadership role.

“I feel like I have done as much as I can do to better the state of the Lewis and Clark County Democrats up until this point, and I am proud of our accomplishments,” Torgerson’s news release states.

The committee is expected to select new officers during its May meeting Tuesday evening.

Current Vice Chair Shani Henry said in an email Tuesday she was unaware of Torgerson’s decision to not seek another term on the board and declined to comment until after Tuesday evening’s officer elections.

During a phone interview Tuesday afternoon, he said he believes the committee “is going to do a great job with their new board.”
