Candidate Biography:

Dr. Linda Halderman, MD, FACS
Born: June 30, 1968 in Illinois

2008-2010: Senior Policy Advisor, State Senator Sam Aanestad
2012: Early Primary Candidate for AD-23 (Withdrew)

  • QUOTABLE: "I never thought I would be in a profession bloodier than trauma surgery."  
  • In 2012, after serving one term in the Assembly, Halderman declined to run for a second term. On a radio show five hours before the end of the filing period for the 2012 elections, she announced "This is my home and I'm staying here, but it's been more than four years since I have been more of a policy person and a politician than a doctor and I just need to go back."
