Official kickoff for Rybak gubernatorial campaign is Sunday

Just a month after winning reelection for another four-year term as Minneapolis mayor, R.T. Rybak will hold an official kickoff event Sunday for his campaign for governor.

It’s really a formality; even before the November election, it was clear that Rybak was angling for the DFL endorsement for governor.

Sunday’s event is at 1 p.m. at the Varsity Theater in Minneapolis’ Dinkytown, 1308 Fourth St. SE.

Next week Rybak starts a three-day campaign tour of the state, hitting St. Cloud, Alexandria and Moorhead on Tuesday; Bemidji, Grand Rapids, Iron Range and Duluth on Wednesday and Winona, Austin, Mankato, New Prague and Rochester on Thursday.
