Wetterling "Engaged in talks" with CD 6 Democratic Leaders
From Politics 1:
MINNESOTA. As we predicted yesterday, child advocate Patty Wetterling (D) quit the open US Senate race Friday afternoon. She also endorsed Hennepin County Attorney Amy Klobuchar, who is now a safe bet to win the Democratic nomination. Wetterling did not announce any future plans, but party officials confirmed she's already engaged in talks with the leaders of the CD-6 Democratic organization. Sounds like Wetterling is going to make a second run for the Congressional seat. Congressman Mark Kennedy is the GOP candidate. Also running is nurse Michael Cavlan (Green) and public access TV group executive Robert Fitzgerald (Independent).

On Almanac, Hatch's appearance at Wetterling's press conference was attributed to his tendency to grandstand in the media.
