Today’s Candidate: Jesse Mortenson


Today’s candidate of the day is Jesse Mortenson for Minnesota State House.

A recent graduate of Macalester College, Mortenson has been an active community volunteer for some time. By running to the far left in this overwhelmingly Democratic district, the local press has started to take note of his potential effect: “This year, the race also includes Green Party activist Jesse Mortenson, who could draw off some of the most liberal voters in this fall’s general election and make the race closer than it has been in years.”

Mortenson’s campaign co-chairs include Rich Broderick, a local Community Council member, former Green Party Lt. Governor candidate Rhoda Gilman, and former mayoral candidate Elizabeth Dickinson.
