Former legislator Shelley Madore announced today that she is “getting back into the race against John Kline” and will run against DFL endorsed candidate for Congress Dan Powers.
This is exactly opposite of what Madore said she would do when questioned during the CD 2 endorsing process on less than a week ago.
In this video she is asked if she will abide by the DFL CD2 endorsement and she says “Yes I will abide by the endorsement.”
In an email sent out today, Madore writes “Since my opponent received the DFL endorsement at the Second Congressional District convention, I’ve been inundated with phone calls and e-mails from across the district urging me to continue my race for the primary endorsement on August 10. They believe I’m in the best position to defeat John Kline in November and so do I.”
