Carfi said her campaign will focus on the cost of healthcare, jobs and public education. The seat came up for grabs when Sen. Mae Beavers resigned her post in order to run for governor. Carfi is the only announced Democrat, while state Rep. Mark Pody is the only candidate for the Republicans. The primary election is scheduled for Nov. 7, with the general election on Dec. 19.
