At least one DFL challenger still in Minneapolis mayor’s race

Bob Miller, head of the Neighborhood Revitalization Program, plans to challenge Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak for the DFL nomination, says Chris Steller of the Minnesota Independent.

Rybak announced this week that he’ll seek a third term in November, but has left the door open for a gubernatorial run in 2010. Steller says City Council Member Ralph Remington won’t run for mayor now that Rybak’s in the race.

Miller tries to differentiate himself from Rybak: “We have differences on how we think citizens should be involved in their local government, how we would manage the finances of the city, the kinds of initiatives that we would focus on,” Miller said.
