COLOMA — State Sen. Kim LaSata said Tuesday she will run for reelection in the state’s new 17th District, even though she currently doesn’t live in the district.

LaSata, R-Bainbridge Township, resides in what will be the state’s new 20th District, as does Sen. Aric Nesbitt, R-Lawton. By running in the 17th District, LaSata will avoid a Republican primary race against another incumbent senator. LaSata told The Herald-Palladium she will move into the 17th District.
