Everyone is running for Attorney General

Looks like the 5th district DFL won't be the only crowded primary. Bill Luther, Steve Kelley, are the biggest names of the field of DFL candidates who will challange John James and Jeff Johnson in November.

This race will have the same dynamic as the 5th CD race as funds will be limited in the DFL and spending will be heavy prior to the primary. With the two big fields both being on the DFL side it will have some effect on fundraising for all DFL candidates, not enough to be noticable, but if the race for Governor or US Senate is close $10,000 might be relevent. It doesn't appear their will be a credible challanger for any other major party candidate. Filing just closed I'll check the update and see what we have.
