  1. Tina doesn’t have the juice with the people running the DFL (cough, Mondale, cough) so she was asked to gracefully step aside.

  2. I’m glad that you covered this today, Mitch.

    I would have been compelled to threadjack the comments on another topic, had you not done so. 😀

  3. she can’t run, she’s been term limited. You really think Dayton has spent any of the last 7 years governing this state? They can barely keep him drugged enough to get through press conferences.

  4. After 3 years in the job, she decided she really didn’t like it that much and doesn’t want to go through another 4 years.

  5. Skeletons in the closet she does not want uncovered while running? Media today is not what it used to be.

  6. My initial thought was that MN businesses and freedoms dodged a bullet.

    My more reasoned reaction was, what have I missed? Does the DFL view her as too damaged, or is the political environment they forsee in 2018 that bad that she elected not to take her chances?

  7. JPA, she ran the regional Planned Parenthood, so…
    NB, either too damaged or somebody with more clout interested? Otto has already announced. I don’t think she has the gravitas to clear the field w/o some backroom threats/bribes. My thought was “What is lined up instead? 7 figure gig or another position. Do I remember that Amy has already announced that she’s NOT running for Gov.?

    No matter what happens, I think she’s too well connected (or just knows where the skeletons are buried) to be left out in the cold. She’ll be well taken care of.

  8. Too privileged.
    White privilege.
    Wealth privilege.
    Hetero privilege.

  9. “Skeletons in the closet she does not want uncovered while running? Media today is not what it used to be.”

    It was discovered that she ordered take-out from Comet Ping Pong every time she was in DC?

    Worse. ChickFilet.
