Rep. Roger Crawford, R-Mora, announced today that he will not be seeking re-election to a second term in the Minnesota House this fall.
In an e-mail to constituents, Crawford noted that he recently suffered a mild heart attack requiring two stents.
“Since last July, I’ve had two mild heart attacks and now five stents in my heart,” Crawford wrote. “Needless to say, this has my family and me concerned.”
Crawford had not yet filed as a candidate in House District 11B. But two other candidates have filed. Ben Wiener of Finlayson is running as a Republican. Nathan Johnson of Pine City is a DFL candidate.
Tim Faust of Hinckley also filed as a DFL candidate.
