Julie Blaha question

Keith Ellison (D), MN AG-elect, won with 49% after being constantly smeared for supposedly trying to pull Karen Monahan out of bed.

Julie Blaha (D), MN Auditor-elect, also won with 49%.

I don't know much about her. Is there a reason she didn't win with a bigger percentage?

1. I don't know much about her either,

and to be honest with you I didn't pay a lot of attention to the auditor election (though I probably should have). Just voted straight DFL. I'm just relieved Ellison won; having that nutbag Wardlow as AG would have been a disaster.

2. No name recognition.

That race just flew under the radar. She was niot well known and there were no scandals to propel that race into the media.

3. She's the former secretary treasurer of the MN AFL-CIO.

She loves data and is HILARIOUS. I love her.

5. Thanks, I guess their endorsement of the Republican cost Julie Blaha (D) votes

...though she still won.

6. Blaha

I think it was a name recognition issue.
