UPDATED: DFL Candidate Pulls Out of the House 20B Race

Patrick Ganey, who is in his first term on the Northfield City Council, has pulled out of the House 20B race.

UPDATED: DFL Candidate Pulls Out of the House 20B Race

UPDATED: 9:55 p.m. Monday

In an email to  Northfield Patch on Monday, Patrick Ganey announced that he is withdrawing his name as a DFL candidate for House District 20B.

Ganey, who is in his first term on the Northfield City Council, said he plans to "explore other political opportunities," but declined to say in a followup email what those opportunities might be. 

That leaves two candidates seeking the DFL nomination for House District 20B: former  and Montgomery's .

The Senate District 20 DFL  convention is scheduled for May 1.

Shawn Groth, chair of the the Senate District 20 DFL, issued this statement following Ganey's announcement:

“Patrick Ganey is a dedicated public servant who cares deeply about serving others. We thank him for his service and his commitment to putting people first. He will continue to be a leader who will seek to bring people together. We look forward to supporting him in whichever opportunities he pursues.” 

Two Republican candidates are also in the race to represent House District 20B: Lonsdale's  and Wheatland Townships'  Rita' Hillmann Olson
