Malachi drops out of Duluth mayoral race, 3 candidates enter

DULUTH, MN– Five days after filing to run for mayor of Duluth, Israel Malachi has dropped out of the race.

According to the City Clerk’s office, Malachi withdrew his candidacy Monday morning. He issued a statement Monday afternoon, saying he made the decision due to “unforeseen circumstances.”

During a press conference announcing his campaign, Malachi highlighted reversing laws already in place regulating cigarettes and flavored tobacco, cleaning up the city, and fixing the city’s streets as his top priorities, if elected.

Malachi did not immediately respond to KBJR 6’s request for comment Monday afternoon.

Along with incumbent Emily Larson, three others have now filed to enter the mayoral race. They include: Corey Ford, Jesse Peterson, and Caleb Anderson.

Ford and Peterson did not immediately respond to a request for an interview Monday afternoon.

The filing period closes June 18.
