Minnesota Democrats have endorsed Rebecca Otto for a third term as state auditor. Otto told delegates Saturday she works every day to make sure Minnesotans can trust their government, because when people trust their government they support it.
Former Long Lake Mayor Randy Gilbert has won Republican backing in his second bid for the state auditor’s post. Gilbert has an accounting background and was the only candidate for the Republican endorsement awarded Friday at the Minnesota GOP convention in Rochester.
Minnesota State Auditor Rebecca Otto is asking voters to give her another four years in the role. The two-term Democrat released a Web video Tuesday that declares her intention to seek re-election in 2014.
