Democrat Matt Entenza’s campaign for governor says Entenza will announce his running mate at a 10:00 AM news conference on the Capitol Steps in St. Paul. The campaign says the two will then file their candidacy at the Secretary of State’s office.
Entenza is running in the DFL primary against Margaret Anderson Kelliher and Mark Dayton. Kelliher announced last week that Minnetonka City Manager John Gunyou is her running mate. Dayton announced earlier this week that DFL state Sen. Yvonne Prettner Solon is his running mate.
