The Handy-Farr contest is likely to be settled in May, Register Guard, 3/1/12

When Mike Clark filed to run for Lane County commissioner in the north Eugene district late last year, he had reason to hope that a head-to-head contest with incumbent Rob Handy would end with a winner on May 15. Instead, Pat Farr filed in January to run for the same position. It looked as though the anti-Handy vote would be split between the two Eugene City Council members, creating the likelihood of a runoff in November. But now Clark has withdrawn, greatly increasing the chances that the race will be settled when Handy or Farr wins a majority in the primary election.
