Two Republican candidates for statewide office have been cleared of wrongdoing by the state elections office.

Krista Griffith is challenging House Minority Whip Deborah Hudson for her seat in the 12th House District.

Hudson, a Republican from Fairthorne, has represented the 12th House District since 1994. She was first elected civil court clerk in New Castle County in 1986. Before that, she was a teacher at Claymont Middle School and an educator at Winterthur Museum.

Hudson said her focus is solely on her work as a state representative. She said that allows her work on local issues - as well as important statewide initiatives and creation of new public policy.
