Reinert, Gauthier advance in Duluth legislative seats

State Rep. Roger Reinert advanced easily in the open Duluth State Senate District 7 DFL primary tonight against former school board member Harry Welty. Reinert faces largely token opposition for the seat held by Mark Dayton’s running mate, Yvonne Prettner Solon.

It appears former 8th CD chair Kerry Gauthier will also advance in the DFL primary for the West Duluth seat Reinert is vacating. He also faces an relatively unknown GOP opponent.

These are hard working candidates, but they really won this race back in June when they managed to avoid attracting well known opponents in what are essentially solid DFL seats.
