U.S. Rep. John Kline, R-Minn., will not seek re-election


Rep. John Kline’s announcement Thursday that he would not seek re-election set off early scrambling by potential candidates in both parties for what will be a competitive open seat in the changing Second Congressional District south of St. Paul.

Although President Obama won the district in 2012, Kline, a Lakeville Republican, won his seventh term easily in 2014. With Kline out, a host of Republicans could join two well-funded DFL challengers plus others who may want to jump in now that the incumbent is leaving.
