DFLers at the Senate District 2 convention made quick work of endorsing incumbents Brita Sailer and Kent Eken Saturday in Park Rapids.


Sailer, who is from Park Rapids, will seek a third term in the House; Eken of Twin Valley is going after his fourth.

Addressing the 36 delegates attending, state Sen. Rod Skoe, Clearbrook, said with only five more House members, both legislative bodies would have the majorities needed next year to override Gov. Tim Pawlenty's veto pen.
