Kline-Obermueller rematch set

Posted by: Corey Mitchell under 2nd District, Minnesota campaigns, Minnesota congressional Updated: August 12, 2014 - 11:11 PM

Former Democratic state Rep. Mike Obermueller will get another shot at unseating Republican U.S. Rep. John Kline, who defeated him in a closer-than-expected race in 2012.

Obermueller handily defeated opponent Michael Roberts, an Army veteran and Hamline University Law School student, in Tuesday’s Democratic primary.

Kline, chairman of the House Education and the Workforce Committee, is seeking a seventh term in Congress representing the Second District, which covers the suburbs south of the Twin Cities.

Paula Overby is the Independence Party candidate in the race.
