Entenza quits attorney general race

Email

ST. PAUL - A man who for years wanted to be Minnesota attorney general today dropped out of the race.

State Rep. Matt Entenza, DFL-St. Paul, said he pulled out because of accusations leveled in the past few days.

"While I'm confident that I could win the race for attorney general, obviously in this environment staying in this race would hurt the Democratic Party and the progressive issues we care about so deeply," Entenza read from a prepared statement.
