Rep. Lanning to make special announcement at press conference

MOORHEAD – Minnesota State Rep. Morrie Lanning is holding a press conference today to make a special announcement.

Lanning would not comment on what he plans to announce, but local media speculated Wednesday that Lanning may soon retire.

In December, longtime Sen. Keith Langseth, DFL-Glyndon, announced his retirement, at which time Lanning told The Forum he had not yet thought about running for a Senate seat.

Moorhead representative Lanning led this year’s Legislature in an effort to build a new Vikings stadium after working on the project for about seven years.

Before serving in the Legislature, Lanning served on the Moorhead City Council and as mayor for 21 years.
