Beyond the Headlines: Meet the MN Senate Dist. 11 candidates

DULUTH, MN — After a January primary narrowed it down to three, the stage is officially set for a special state election this Tuesday.

We’re talking about Minnesota’s 11th Senate District seat, which was vacated when Democrat Tony Lourey was appointed to lead the state’s Department of Human Services by Governor Tim Walz.

District 11 includes portions of Carlton, Kanabec, Pine, and St. Louis Counties.

In this episode of Beyond the Headlines, we’re going one-on-one with the candidates and where they stand on the issues.

Democrat Stu Lourey faces Republican State Representative Jason Rarick, and Legal Marijuana Now party candidate John “Sparky” Birrenbach.

A quick note to voters: people who live in mail-in only precincts are invited to drop off their ballots at the Carlton County auditor’s office.

To accommodate, the auditor’s office is extending its hours. They’ll be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday, and 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on election day.
