Republican Candidate Out
The Pioneer Press reports that Republican party activists will not support incumbent candidates.
House representative of Andover, Kathy Tingelstad, announced Monday that she will not seek re-election.
After Tingelstad voted against party lines on the transportation bill she fell out of favor with party activists who will not endorse her.
The Republicans who went against party lines, now being called the "Override Six," are losing their district endorsements.
The Coon Rapids Herald reports that the loss of endorsement was only part of why she will not seek re-election.
Tingelstad would like to pursue other ventures at an executive level in either business or government.
