Candidates to debate in race to succeed Rukavina

Candidates for the State House seat being vacated by retiring Rep. Tom Rukavina (DFL-Pike Township) will debate Aug. 7 in Virginia, Minnesota. All three DFLers, including Lorrie Janatopoulos, Jason Metsa and Dave Meyer, and both GOPers, including Jesse Colangelo and Dan Darbo, will participate in the debate.

This will probably be the last and best opportunity to size up the candidates before the Aug. 14 primary, which I discussed here last week. The House 6B debate will take place Tuesday, Aug. 7 from 6-8 p.m. at the Coates Plaza Hotel in Virginia. The event is organized by the Laurentian Area Chamber of Commerce and the Mesabi Daily News.
