State Rep. Debra Hilstrom, a DFLer from Brooklyn Center, has announced that she’ll seek the endorsement in the secretary of state’s race.
Incumbent DFL Mark Ritchie announced June 4 that he won’t seek re-election, after eight years in office.
Hilstrom, first elected to the state House in 2000, is an assistant Anoka County attorney. She said she’ll abide by the party endorsement.
Several other DFLers have expressed interest, and Rachel Larson Bohman, a former elections official in Anoka and Hennepin counties, has officially mounted a campaign.
