Businessman Colin Minehart, former president of the Minnesota Licensed Beverage Association, announced his congressional candidacy earlier this week. He joins former state Sen. Vicky Jensen in the Democratic primary. The winner will attempt to succeed incumbent Rep. Tim Walz (D-Mankato), who is running for Governor. Since Mr. Walz was re-elected with only 50.3% of the vote in November, this race promises to be hotly contested. Businessman Jim Hagedorn, the Republican who held Walz to his low win percentage, is returning for the open seat contest.
