Women's group backs Kelliher, too, for Minnesota governor

ST. PAUL (AP) — The Minnesota chapter of the National Organization for Women is endorsing a second candidate for governor, House Speaker Margaret Anderson Kelliher, after earlier announcing its support of former lawmaker Matt Entenza.

Minnesota NOW says both Kelliher and Entenza earned its backing for their support of women's rights.

Kelliher is the only female major-party candidate. She is also the endorsed DFL candidate.

Entenza, Kelliher and former U.S. Sen. Mark Dayton are running in the August 10 Democratic primary.
