Democrat Ryan Cronin said Thursday he is thinking about challenging state Sen. Kemp Hannon (R-Garden City) again.

“I am considering it,” Cronin said. “I’ve had a lot of conversations with donors. I’m being encouraged by supporters. I’m now going through the process to make a decision.”

Hannon defeated Cronin 52 percent to 48 percent in 2012. Now in his 13th term, Hannon heads the Senate Health Committee.

"Senator Hannon's record speaks for itself," said Republican spokesman Scott Reif. "He continues to do a great job with the work he's been sent to Albany to do."
