Sifton to Get Company

The heels of Sen. Scott Sifton’s announcement that he will seek the attorney general job in 2016, comes word that he’s not the only Democrat eyeing that position.  In fact St. Louis County Assessor Jake Zimmerman is also talking to donors about it, and considering a run.  One politico thinks that Zimmerman’s interest might have accelerated Sifton’s timeline as he looks to nail down donors and endorsements ahead of Zimmerman.

 

There are no ideological difference – to my eye anyway – between a Sifton AG and a Zimmerman AG.  And in terms of candidate strength both have impressed observers with their smarts and strong work ethic.
