>>GOP Primary Battle Possible in 2nd District U-S House Race

(Undated) — Next Saturday’s endorsing convention will determine whether Republicans in Minnesota’s 2nd Congressional District are united in their challenge to Congresswoman Angie Craig, or if there’s a primary election battle in that high-profile contest. The Star Tribune reports former federal prosecutor Joe Teirab (TEER-abb) told activists he’ll continue his campaign to the August primary with or without his party’s endorsement. His G-O-P rival, attorney Tayler Rahm, is criticizing Teirab for breaking an earlier pledge to abide by the party’s choice. Second District Republican Party Chairman Joseph Ditto says he hopes both candidates will observe their pledges and “a primary challenge, regardless of outcome, will weaken our chances to beat Craig.”
