Shake up SD 44

So Rep. Ron Latz is running for Steve Kelley's seat (source: Polinaut), and I've just heard from a reliable source that Mike Freiberg, committee administrator for Sen. Leroy Stumpf, is likely to be one of many running for the Latz seat.

Ryan Winkler from Golden Valley is in the 44B race. Ted Mondale is his campaign chair.

Matt, what is it about Ryan Winkler that has you so excited?

MK said...

Folks like Ryan are the future of the party. Ryan is sharp, articulate, and a pragmatic principled progressive.

Matt Klaber/MK is the campaign manager of the Ryan Winkler campaign, and he doesn't live in the district. It looks like he was a recent state convention delegate from Nicollet County(I am not sure where Nicollet County is, all I do know is that this is Hennepin and not Nicollet). Ted Mondale, chair of Ryan Winklers campaign, doesn't live in the district either. Does anybody that actually lives in district 44b support this Ryan Winkler guy?

James: What exactly is your point about Ryan "moving into the district to run for this race" and "only living in the district for 9 months". First, your facts are wrong, and second... what's the issue? Is he some sort of spy who moved into the district to get elected and screw everything up for us? It really seems like a non-issue to me. He lives in the district and is choosing to raise his family here. This seems like a commitment to me. I think there are a lot more relevent issues in this race... like compentence and knowledge of the issues.
