The list of candidates for Minneapolis mayor has grown to 32 this morning; filings close at 5 p.m. Tuesday, so there could be even more.
One of the new candidates is Captain Jack Sparrow, who's been involved in some Occupy protests over home foreclosures. He calls himself an occupirate.
Candidates have until Thursday to withdraw from the race, or their names will be on the ballot.
And with ranked-choice voting in Minneapolis, there is no primary, so all candidates will be on the Nov. 5 ballot, and voters will be able to mark their first, second and third choices.
