Obermueller is currently the only Minnesota candidate to have earned designation, according to a press release issued by his campaign on Monday.

Second Congressional District DFLers will gather at the Rosemount High School on Saturday to select their nominee to challenge Republican incumbent John Kline in the November elections.
Second Congressional District DFLers will gather at the Rosemount High School on Saturday to select their nominee to challenge Republican incumbent John Kline in the November elections. Kline received the unanimous endorsement from Republicans at the GOP convention at Shakopee Junior High School last week.

Candidates for this Saturday's DFL endorsement include Kathleen Gaylord, a Dakota County commissioner and former mayor of South St. Paul; Mike Obermueller of…
