Several of the DFL candidates for governor are holding campaign events today.
Former U.S. Sen. Mark Dayton holds a news conference to commemorate the end of his 87 counties in 87 days event.
Minnesota House Speaker Margaret Anderson Kelliher will “unveil an additional key endorsement for her campaign for governor, and to address state and local government issues” this afternoon at Minneapolis City Hall.
Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak will also host a fundraiser for former DNC Chair (and former VT Gov. Howard Dean) will hold a fundraiser for Rybak tonight.
The events come just eight days before Democrats will meet to endorse a candidate for governor. Rybak and Kelliher say they’ll step aside if they don’t win the endorsement. Dayton says he’s running in the primary regardless of the outcome.
