Doran Announcement-Kelley Reaction And Analysis

You consider a lot of things that might happen when you run for Governor, but one thing that State Senator Steve Kelley didn't consider was the possiblity of Kelly Doran dropping out of the U.S. Senate race to run for the DFL endorsement for Governor.

"Certainly having a new candidate in makes voters choices somewhat more complicated." Kelley tells Inside Minnesota Politics. "It doesn't change the campaign plan. We're going to stay focused on grass roots organizing, getting around the state, meeting with people and building an organization that will help me to win the DFL endorsement and win the primary."

Click here to hear Kelley's reaction to Doran leaving open the possibility that he would run in the primary even if he lost the endorsement. Kelley also comments on Doran's decision to forgo State matching funds for his campaign. That will allow Doran to spend more than the campaign financing limits.
