Five forums set for DFL candidates in 2nd Congressional District race

Three DFLers running for the Second Congressional District seat will meet five times in candidate forums over the next seven weeks.

U.S. Rep. John Kline, a Republican, isn’t running for re-election, which has set off a scramble in both parties; five GOP candidates are also seeking the seat.

For the DFL, the candidates are Angie Craig, Roger Kittelson and Dr. Mary Lawrence.

The DFL forum schedule is:

  • Jan. 9, Scott County Library, Prior Lake
  • Jan. 10, Hastings City Hall
  • Jan. 24, Burnhaven Library, Burnsville
  • Jan. 31, Wentworth Library, West St. Paul
  • Feb. 21, The Grand, Northfield

Organizers say the candidates will be asked a series of preprepared questions as well as questions submitted by audience members. The public is invited to attend.

Republicans seeking their party’s endorsement for the seat include former talk-show host Jason Lewis, former Sen. John Howe, former Rep. Pam Myhra, activist David Gerson and newcomer David Benson-Staebler. They debated in November in Inver Grove Heights.
