In governor's race, St. Paul's Coleman takes on mayoral jinx
March 6, 2017
Chris Coleman grabbed the microphone at a bar and grill in Savage. The crowd of suburban DFLers, plus some of his potential rivals in the race for governor, chatted as he launched into his two-minute pitch.
"In the city of St. Paul, we have been able to govern with traditional DFL values but we've been able to move the city forward," Coleman told the half-listening party faithful, many of whom admitted they know little about the mayor who has run St. Paul for nearly 12 years.
