Steve Kelley endorsed for AG

So Steve Kelley has been endorsed for Attorney General. Some people are not happy.

It was the central committee's choice to endorse or not. It's pretty ridiculous to say this was decided by "insiders"; first, the DFL Central Committee is pathetically huge, more than just a dozen insiders. Second, it is open to anybody who cares enough to attend precinct caucuses and then run for something. The DFL party apparatus is not made up of wealthy contributors who buy candidates. It is made up of people with enough free time to get seriously involved.

I don't fault Steve Kelley for seeking the endorsement. I don't think he was obligated to stop just because Bill Luther and Lori Swanson didn't show up. And since there is a primary, people are free to vote for whomever they want. Personally, I think Bill Luther is a much poorer choice, and I know very little about Lori Swanson at this point. So we will see what happens.
