As expected, Steve Sarvi won DFL endorsement Saturday in the 2nd Congressional District and will run against George W. Bush — oops, make that incumbent John Kline — in November. In the process of  winning endorsement, both Sarvi and the DFL made frequent references to the president in setting the stage for the congressional campaign.

“I believe our nation’s finest days await us, if we will only change course now and stay that course, not the one George Bush and John Kline have put us on,” Sarvi, an Iraqi war vet and Watertown mayor, said in his acceptance speech.

The DFL also issued a news release tying the record of the three-term Republican to the president.
