DFL gubernatorial candidate Matt Entenza is officially setting his sights on the Aug. 10 primary election.
Entenza has frequently said the door was open for a primary run if other candidates were doing the same. His campaign manager, Dave Colling, said today that the transition to the primary has begun.
“We are now currently looking at our primary election goals and moving toward contacting our primary election voters,” Colling said. “We’re moving onto the next step and making sure we’re ready for what’s coming up.”
Colling explained that Entenza’s focus and message is moving from DFL convention delegates and alternates to the broader voting public. He insisted Entenza will still participate in the state DFL convention next month and will have a “good number” of delegates.
DFL candidates Mark Dayton and Susan Gaertner are also running in the primary.
