Attorney General Lori Swanson shakes up DFL field in governor's race

Attorney General Lori Swanson jumped into the DFL primary for Minnesota governor on Monday, immediately shaking up the contest between state Rep. Erin Murphy and U.S. Rep. Tim Walz and complicating the Democratic effort to hold onto the state’s top political job.

Swanson announced her plans at a hastily arranged, 20-minute news conference in Minneapolis. At her side was U.S. Rep. Rick Nolan of northeastern Minnesota, her newly minted lieutenant governor running mate.
