Claire Konold doesn't get a walk in the Primary

I just got the heads up from Watertown - apparently Claire Konold is going to have a challenger in the District 5 Republican Primary for Lee Schoenbeck's Seante Seat. As it was put to me:
Dennis Arnold announced on Friday he will seek the Senate Seat here in District 5, looks like Claire might have a REALLY big challenge.
It's not a name I'm familiar with, so I did a little hunting, and from the Watertown Public Opinion, I found his announcement. As noted:

Arnold, 56, will run as a Republican. He recently retired after spending more than three decades in education, the last 24 of which were as principal of McKinley Elementary School in Watertown. During his time in education, he was recognized with a number of honors and served on professional boards all the way up to the national level.

He and his wife, Deb, own and operate Arnold Construction Inc. They have lived in Watertown for 33 years and have two grown children.

With Arnold in the race we are going to see the "All in the Family" because Kristi Noem (District 6) in a niece of Dennis Arnold. Not good!
