All six DFL candidates showed up for the party’s second congressional district gubernatorial forum on Saturday, January 27, 2018.
The under-promoted event had the six laying out policy prescriptions and nuanced differences to a sparse crowd at the Robert Boeckman Middle School in Farmington.
Chris Coleman made the most news, but its not clear it was intentional. He was the only one of the six that refused to say he would honor the DFL endorsement process.
