St. Paul May­or Chris Cole­man (D) “said Tues­day he is run­ning for gov­ernor of Min­nesota in 2018, as he tries to lever­age his lead­er­ship of the state’s second-largest city in­to a statewide polit­ic­al bid. … Cole­man said he would seek the DFL en­dorse­ment to run but was not defin­it­ive on wheth­er he’d bow out of the race if an­oth­er can­did­ate gets the en­dorse­ment.”

Cole­man: “I think we’ve made a huge dif­fer­ence in every corner of the city. … Pro­gress for kids, jobs for fam­il­ies. … I think the con­ver­sa­tion across Min­nesota is the same as what we’ve been work­ing on in St. Paul for 11 years.”

Gov. Mark Dayton (D) is not seek­ing reelec­tion. (Min­neapol­is Star Tribune)
