Former US Rep. Minge Leaving Judicial Post

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Court of Appeals Judge David Minge is retiring at the end of March.

Gov. Mark Dayton’s office made the announcement Wednesday of an upcoming vacancy for the court’s Second Congressional District seat. The announcement says Minge is retiring on March 31.

The 69-year-old Minge is a former four-term Democratic congressman from southwestern Minnesota. He lost a reelection bid in 2000 to Republican Mark Kennedy. Former Gov. Jesse Ventura appointed him to the state Court of Appeals in 2002.

The state’s Commission on Judicial Selection is now accepting applicants for the seat.
