Minnesota state Sen. Tom Bakk, an Iron Range stalwart and one of the Capitol's most powerful DFL lawmakers, is facing a rare internal challenge from a fellow Democratic senator for the post of minority leader.

The looming showdown between Bakk and his new challenger, Sen. Susan Kent of Woodbury, was expected to play out in a DFL caucus meeting scheduled for Tuesday. Bakk, however, acted Thursday to postpone the meeting, which could turn into a clash between the party's liberal metro lawmakers and its more conservative outstate wing.
