Judge Rasmussen files for re-election
Clearwater County District Judge Paul Rasmussen filed for re-election Thursday in the only area filing.
The secretary of state's Web page for candidate filings lists Michael Cummins of Brook Park as a Republican candidate for the 8th District seat held by U.S. Rep. Jim Oberstar, a Democrat, but Cummins is actually the GOP-endorsed candidate for Minnesota Senate District 8.
Cummins ran against Oberstar in 2008. Chip Cravaack of Chisago City carries the Republican endorsement to run against Oberstar this year.
There were no new Beltrami County filings on Thursday.
Filings close June 1.
