Erlandson's Future

Mike Erlandson, the outgoing DFL Party chair, hinted about his future the other day. Previously on a short list of DFL Senate Candidates, it now looks like he may make a run at Mary Kiffmeyer for Secretary of State:
Erlandson acknowledged that "a lot of folks talk to me about a lot of things," but that he's most interested in running for secretary of state, now the job of Republican Mary Kiffmeyer, in 2006. One of the job's chief functions is "to get people to come out and vote and that's what the party chairmanship was all about," he said. Despite his history as one of the state's top partisans, Erlandson said he would be less partisan than Kiffmeyer.
