ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A familiar face in Minnesota politics is back to challenge the state auditor in a Democratic primary.
Former House Minority Leader Matt Entenza filed Tuesday to run against Rebecca Otto, who is seeking a third term.
Entenza, of Worthington, ran unsuccessfully for governor four years ago. He says he's challenging Otto because she's had a low profile and he thinks Minnesota needs an auditor who will scrutinize education spending and protect pensions that are "under attack."
Entenza spent more than $5 million on his run for governor, most of it his own.
