Judy Stiegler is considering a run for her old seat. She was elected in 2008, but lost to Conger in 2010.
Stiegler was the first democrat to represent Bend in Salem since the mid 1980's.
"The only reason I'm seriously considering doing this is I feel I have a lot to offer to the district. I was absoltuely privileged to serve central Oregon in the legislature. And if I didn't feel that way, I wouldn't be thinking about it."
Stiegler plans to make a decision in the next six to eight weeks.
She says her husband, former Deschtues County District Attorney Mike Dugan is very supportive of another run.
41 year old combat veteran, Craig Wilhelm of Bend is also considering running as a democrat for the seat.
