Last day to file for office in Minnesota arrives

Posted:

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- The last day to enter the hunt for a state, federal or judicial office in Minnesota has arrived.

Candidates have until 5 p.m. Tuesday to file for office. So far hundreds have done so.

Many offices are on the line this year. Voters will elect a U.S. senator, a governor, 134 state House members and several other public officials.

There will be August primaries for some hopefuls, but most office-seekers will skip ahead to the general election.

Candidates who file have until Thursday to withdraw.
