Matt Entenza Gets Primary Opponent


Mattson to run against Entenza in DFL attorney general primary

ST. PAUL - A St. Paul attorney says she will run against state Representative Matt Entenza for the D-F-L nomination for attorney general of Minnesota.

Jennifer Mattson says she is challenging the party's endorsed candidate because he hired a Chicago firm to investigate the current attorney general, Mike Hatch, who is running for governor. She also said Entenza faces a conflict of interest if elected because the attorney general is investigating UnitedHealth Group's granting of stock options. Entenza's wife is a UnitedHealth executive.

Jennifer Mattson's grandfather, Robert Mattson, was once attorney general, and her father, Robert Mattson, was state treasurer in the 1980s.

I'm sure DFL Blogger Pollytick will be pleased.
