Rittenour endorsed

Princeton native Jim Rittenour, now a resident of Milaca, was endorsed at the DFL district meeting at Milaca High School March 8 to run for the District 15A Minnesota House seat. He would be opposing incumbent State Rep. Sondra Erickson, R-Princeton, who is endorsed by her party and is seeking re-election.
Senate District 15 DFL chair Jim Huhtala stated that no one was endorsed at the DFL meeting for the House 15B race. The incumbent Republican representative in House 15B is Jim Newberg, of Becker, who is endorsed and seeking re-election.
District 15A covers Mille Lacs County, all of the city of Princeton, Blue Hill and Baldwin Townships and part of western Kanabec County. Rittenour, 47, is taking over the printing business that his mother Elly Rittenour had owned and operated in Milaca until her retirement from it, and is now running it as 3DPrintingMinnesota.
