My 5 second take: lots of progressive people are supporting Jen Kader, who I can confirm is great IRL and absolutely could hit the ground running. However, it does seem kinda weird to support a white candidate in one of the only "minority-majority" districts in the entire state of MN. Of the 134 house districts, there are maybe a dozen (at most?) that a person of color could reliably win. With MN's growing population of non-white people, it seems pretty reasonable to have a non-white person representing this particular district.
Unrelated, but I want to bring attention to it. There's one State Senate seat on the ballot this Nov, to finish out Michelle Fischbach's term through the end of 2020. The MN Senate is currently tied 33-33. Whichever party wins this suburban/rural St. Cloud-area district
would gain control of the Senate. Former Sartell Mayor Joe Perske is the DFL candidate, running against current State Rep. Jeff Howe. More info here: http://www.startribune.com/state-rep-je ... 483966931/
P.S. I don't think the DFL is likely to gain a majority in the MN House, no matter how huge the Blue Wave turns out to be. Democrats are more likely to win the US House and Senate than the MN House this year. I don't think the DFL will have another chance at the MN House until redistricting post-2020 Census (i.e. rural population decline, urban-suburban growth, districts rearranged, etc.)
