St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman to announce he’s running for third term

It’s been obvious for months, but the official confirmation comes today.

Chris Coleman will make it official today that he’s running for a third term as St. Paul mayor.

It’s been obvious for months, but he’s held off on the formal announcement until now.

Gov. Mark Dayton is scheduled to attend the campaign kickoff event at noon today, on the 10th floor the Pioneer Endicott Building in downtown St. Paul, which is being renovated from offices to apartments.

So far, the only challenger on the horizon for Coleman is Tim Holden, a real estate agent planning to run as an independent.
