An excerpt from Politics Now article:
"Dahlberg is positioning himself as a candidate with crossover appeal who can win a statewide election. He stresses his track record of winning elections in the DFL stronghold of St. Louis County, which includes Duluth.
"We need to appeal to a wider range of voters," Dahlberg said in a statement announcing his candidacy. "Any credible Republican can get support in strong Republican districts, but what good does that do? We need a candidate who's not only a strong fiscal conservative, but one who has also proven an ability to appeal to Democrats and independents."
