First-time Democratic candidates Nicole Thompson and Linda Greeson had a red, white and blue celebration cake that was cut into, but without the hope of celebration. Thompson lost to Republican candidate Mike Bernskoetter for the 6th district state Senate race. Steven Wilson, the libertarian candidate in this race, won 2 percent of the votes.

Greeson was defeated by Republican Rudy Veit for the 59th district state House race 24 percent to 76 percent.
