Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie said today that he will not seek re-election to a third term.

He will serve out his current term which ends January 2015.


“This was a difficult decision for me. But after months of thought and discussion with family, I concluded that January 2015 will be the right time for me to step aside — making way for the next generation of talented leadership in the Office of the Secretary of State,” said Ritchie.
