St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman announces run for third term

St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman confirmed Wednesday that he's running for a third term, the Star Tribune reports.

MinnPost says the announcement is no surprise and has been obvious for months. The 51-year-old democrat made the announcement on the 10th floor of the Pioneer Endicott Building in downtown St. Paul, which is being renovated from offices to apartments.

No one has officially filed to run against the mayor, the Pioneer Press reports, however, real estate agent Tim Holden announced plans to run as an independent.

Coleman was first elected in 2005 and won a new term in 2009. The Star Tribune says no St. Paul mayor has run for a third term since George Latimer in 1980. If Coleman is re-elected his mayoral tenure will stretch to 12 years, nearly as long as Latimer’s 13-1/2 years in office.
