DFL delegates did not endorse DFL Rep. Joe Mullery in House District 58A. Mullery and DFL challenger Peggy Flanagan were vying for the endorsement. I’m told that neither candidate garnered enough support for endorsement on the first two ballots. The delegates voted for “no endorsement” on the third ballot. I’m told both are headed to a September primary.
