Fridley State Senator Satveer Chaudhary has lost his effort to re-gain DFL endorsement for re-election. A special DFL panel met Sunday and rejected his appeal of an earlier decision by DFL leaders to remove party endorsement. Chaudhary chairs an influential state senate committee dealing with outdoor issues. Near the end of the last legislative session he put language into a bill that would benefit a lake where he owns a cabin. The controversy led to his loss of party endorsement and now he faces re-election against Barb Goodwin who has been given the party’s endorsement.
