WOODBURY, Minn. (AP) — The deputy chairwoman of Minnesota’s Republican Party says she’ll run for an open state House seat in Woodbury.

Kelly Fenton filed Friday to run for House District 53B. The seat’s being vacated by Republican Rep. Andrea Kieffer, who’s stepping down after two terms.

Fenton is a former public schoolteacher, and has been deputy chair of the state Republican Party since December 2011. She plans to stay in that post through her current term, which ends in April 2015.

The suburban district east of St. Paul has long been a political swing area, and has sent both Republicans and Democrats to the Capitol.

Democrat Kay Hendrickson is also running. She is a member of the Woodbury Planning Commission, and works in the State Ombudsman’s Office for Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities.
