 Joy has had some health issues recently, having recently undergone treatment for lung cancer.  But, he says doctors at the University of Nebraska Medical Center gave him a clean bill of health recently, and that helped cement his decision to run.  (play audio  :32)
 Joy is the only person to date to file to run for the First District State Senate seat.  The deadline to file to run in the May 15th primary election is February 15th for current office holders and March 1st for non-incumbents.  Current First District Senator Lavon Heidemann is coming to the end of his second four-year term, and is prohibited by term limits from seeking a third term.
