Chris Coleman won’t be reelected by acclamation, after all, in his bid for a second term as St. Paul mayor. He was unanimously endorsed by the DFL city convention recently, but the Pioneer Press blog City Hall Scoop notes two challengers are lying in the weeds.
Republican John Krenik has said he’ll run, and now first-time candidate Eva Ng says she’s in and will run as a conservative independent, say the Scoopsters.
After a career as a business consultant, Ng took over as CEO of Eagan-based Blanda Inc. and married company founder Bob Blanda.
Her campaign Facebook page lists 13 supporters.
