Attorney General


SNAPSHOT
The attorney general's race was thrown into some turmoil when Matt Entenza, the DFL-endorsed candidate for the office, dropped his candidacy on July 18, setting off a flurry of last-minute filings for the September primary. Five candidates are now in the race, including the top deputy to current Attorney General Mike Hatch, a former Congressman and an unsuccessful candidate for governor. The Republican candidate, Rep. Jeff Johnson, is waiting in the wings, no doubt enjoying the upheaval on the DFL side. Entenza's candidacy got into trouble after he acknowledged that he hired a private research company to look into Mike Hatch. — Melanie Sommer
