Description

Surrounded by a crowd of green-shirted supporters, Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak took the podium at the DFL convention in Duluth Saturday night and withdrew from the race for governor, saying it was time for the DFL party "to come together and support Margaret Anderson Kelliher for governor."

"Thank you so much," he told a cheering crowd of activists who rose to their feet. "It is time for the greatest party in history to come together and support Margaret Anderson Kelliher."

A Rybak aide then moved to suspend the convention rules and endorse Kelliher by acclamation. It passed.
