Divided left field of Minneapolis mayoral hopefuls have unified message: Don't rank Frey
But mayor backed by Walz, Ellison, Klobuchar
October 19, 2021
A growing chorus of local politicians is encouraging Minneapolis residents to leave Jacob Frey off their ballots, as they seek to unseat the mayor whose public safety stances they oppose but without any agreement on who should replace him.
U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minneapolis, announced outside City Hall Monday that she is endorsing challengers Kate Knuth and Sheila Nezhad.
"I'm asking you not to rank our current mayor," Omar said. "Both of these women are qualified and passionate. One of them would make an excellent leader for Minneapolis, and both of them would be a better fit for the city than the current mayor."
