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.
