They’re dropping like flies these days…

From MPR just now:

Sen. Marko drops bid for Congress
(AP) – State Sen. Sharon Marko, DFL-Cottage Grove, says she’s dropping out of the 2nd District Congressional race.

Marko entered the race less than two months ago. She was seeking the DFL endorsement along with former FBI agend Coleen Rowley. Marko says she got into the race too late and the campaign conflicted with her legislative work once the session started.

“I’m finding it difficult to get away from the Capitol long enough to spend a significant amount of time in the delegate hunt and it’s made it particularly difficult for me to stay here at the Capitol and fulfill my responsibility as an elected official,” she said.

Marko didn’t throw her backing to Rowley, saying she will stay neutral in the race. The DFL nominee will run against U.S. Rep. John Kline, R-Minn. Marko is not running for reelection to her Senate seat and says she hasn’t decided what she will do after the election.
