Nygaard to jump in 6th?

The crew at KvM are claiming Dan Nygaard may jump into the 6th.

Nice scoop. I had it over a week ago when Dr. Yecke dropped out of the race.

While the ramifications for this are not yet know, it is speculated that Dan Nygaard is getting ready to jump in the race. Apparently his op-ed in the Star Tribune a few weeks back was meant to test the waters, and was well received within the 6th. This could be the break that Nygaard needs, with delegates and voters alike disillusioned with the three legislator/candidates, which leaves just Esmay, who has yet to generate a great deal of buzz.

They are letting more and more speculation in at their site. I had a little more information about Nygaard's intentions but I am not able to comment on their site.

There are 2 conditions which Nygaard will enter the race. It does not appear those conditions will occur, but it is a long time til then.

Oh, I guess you can count a 3rd...if the legislature fails a 2nd consecutive term to do what they should then he will likely jump in.

I know there is a group, albiet small, that is trying to convince Dan Nygaard to get in the race.

If things don't pan out in St. Paul this session, being a legislature is going to be a liability for the three big candidates.

I am a CD6 delegate...what concerns me about the post on KVM is the implication that the delegates are too stupid to choose the correct candidate, and it is up to Mr. Nygaard to save us from ourselves.

Certainly, if Mr. Nygaard wants to run, its his right. However, the post says that he would be "inclined to enter the race" if we pick an unelectable candidate. (Does that mean entering the race AFTER the endorsement?) That seems to be a complete disregard for the endorsement process, a process which, as a CD Chair, he should be supporting and upholding.

A quick note about KvM...they do think very little of the delegates. Remember KvM and some of their contributers called the delegates that did not support their candidates (all of them) mutineers.

They think that only the people at the top and the pundits whose noses are so far up the top-sitters tail-pipes know what is best for the party. Go through KvM and their contributors individual blogs in June (and the comments they posted in response to the delegates) to see the disdain for the lower level people.

See, in their minds the delegates should attend conventions but follow the direction of the party bosses. In fact, KvM's authors do not even hold enough respect for the delegates to even listen to the delegates own reasons for opposing the establishment. Instead KvM constantly tells the delegates what the delegates think.

It is a shame. The KvM site was such a great concept...what is it that has made it lose its direction?
