STAR TRIBUNE: Former state lawmaker stuns incumbent in Duluth mayoral primary

If Duluth Mayor Emily Larson wants a third term, she faces a tough battle against former Minnesota lawmaker Roger Reinert, who surprised many by capturing more than 60% of the vote in the five-person field in Duluth’s primary election Tuesday. The results in the state’s only municipal primary election sets the stage for the first competitive mayoral race in 16 years.
