Northfield City Councilor Patrick Ganey (DFL) has announced he is running for Congess against Minnesota Representative John Kline. He was making the rounds of DFL endorsing conventions this weekend letting delegates know that he’s in the running. Earlier this year he decided against running for the Minnesota legislature.
Former Minnesota state Representative Mike Obermueller (DFL) says he is very close to deciding to running for Congress and will make a decision soon. Obermueller served one term in the Minnesota House before losing to Republican Doug Wardlow in 2010.
After redistricting, Minnesota’s second congressional district indexes more than 50 percent Democratic.
