King still considering campaign run


King may continue primary campaign despite injury

Land O'Lakes Republican Jim King, who is challenging U.S. Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite in the GOP congressional primary, said he is still considering whether to continue his campaign. King said he is suffering from a serious back injury and saw a second doctor Monday. By e-mail, King said he is "out for at least three weeks," but did not elaborate on his campaign, which he suspended last week. Early voting for the Aug. 26 primary begins in five weeks.
