McCollum snubs Hatch

Rep. Betty McCollum has joined Sen. Steve Kelley’s campaign team to fight Mike Hatch for the DFL endorsement for governor (see link). The Congresswoman was a popular choice for anti-Klobuchar progressives to replace Sen. Mark Dayton. It would appear that DFL golden boy Mike Hatch is not as popular with the DFL elites as some might assume. Hatch can pretty much write off support from the 4th Congressional District. With news like that, you can bet Hatch is already preparing for a primary battle.

First Patrick Reusse, now Betty McCollum, I'm on the edge of my seat to see who's next.

Hatch is VERY unpopular among DFLers. He's also a nasty employer. I have heard horrible stories about him from a friend of mine who worked for him when he was in Commerce.
