While Jefferson County is small, Biery said her home base gives her an advantage.
"Jefferson County is a little blue sapphire," she said, referring to the blue designation for Democrats, versus the red for Republicans.

"I don't have the answer as to how we can get more bipartisan cooperation," she said.
