Ramsey County Attorney Susan Gaertner says her name will not be put into nomination at next week’s DFL endorsing convention. Roughly 1,300 delegates will meet in Duluth on April 30th to back a candidate.
Gaertner has said in the past that she’s running in the August primary but emphasized today that her name won’t be put forward at the endorsing convention.
Gaertner, Matt Entenza and Mark Dayton all say they’re headed to the August primary regardless of the outcome of the convention.
Dayton says his name won’t be put into nomination. A staffer for Entenza says Entenza’s name will be put into nomination and he’ll work to win the endorsement.
