Watching the candidacies of people like Mayor Oberloh remind me of two items.

First is that we DFLers forgot to build our bench in rural areas - mayors, council members, county commissioners, school board members, etc. We left those slots empty.

Also, and David Minge mastered this well, he showed that rural folks should not be scared of people who held the "DFL" label. They were our people for so long; and we lost them, largely by our own doing in my estimation. (Others may differ with that, but it's how I feel most days.)

Good luck to all these folks and even if they do not prevail, I hope they show that a DFLer can run a good quality race in rural areas--outside the Range--and be well received.
