According to this report on MPR
the rumors are true and former State House minority leader Matt Entenza has officially dropped out of the race for Attorney General today. It is too bad Hatch doesn't want to run for re-election as Attorney General. I think Entenza might have made a great candidate for AG, but his wife's work for United Health Group and Entenza's support of the stadium giveaway to billionaire Carl Pohlad would have destroyed his chances and poisoned voter turnout.
We still need an electable U.S. Senate candidate, preferably someone with some peace credentials, but at least someone a little more progressive with a sharper focus on real issues, connections outstate, not a prosecutor. Amy would also make a great Attorney General, but the Senate is the wrong job for her.
