Bender Wins 10th Ward DFL Endorsement

Killian sacrifices campaign for change in leadership

And as if the contentious race was not dramatic enough, and seemed to play out the arc of a movie coming to an end, the audience was left wondering, “Would there be a sequel?” Although other challengers conceded their campaigns, Tuthill was not clear about bowing out of the race after losing the endorsement.
