But six months after signups began, CEO Scott Leitz says the online marketplace has turned a corner. “We’re continuing to grow at about 1,000 people per day who we’re enrolling through MNsure, so we’re continuing to see growth, and it’s only going to get more as we move into the fall open-enrollment period,” Leitz said.
On Tuesday it was Vice President Joe Biden packing rooms in Minneapolis and Rochester. Thursday it will be Mitt Romney in Minnetonka for a fundraiser.
