DNT: Roger Reinert sheds DFL label in his bid to become Duluth mayor

Roger Reinert announced Monday he will not seek the DFL endorsement in his campaign to be elected the city’s next mayor, challenging the incumbent candidate Emily Larson, who is seeking a third term, presumably again upon the DFL ticket. “I’ve been endorsed and elected multiple times as a DFL candidate. But I’ve always been a moderate, a consensus building, a business Democrat ― a little more fiscally conservative, a little more socially liberal. And that has not changed,” Reinert said.
