This makes me smile:

Former state representative from Edina, Downey helped kick former Republican representative Ron Erhardt to the curb in a 2008 endorsing convention battle after the latter voted to fund roads by a hike in the gas tax. then emerged as the winner in a three-way race in the general election. Downey ran for state senate in the state's most expensive race, losing to rising DFL star Melisa Franzen.

The best part? Guess who got Downey's House seat? Ron Erhardt -- who ran as a DFLer.
