Stevens County Coordinator Jim Thoreen said Tuesday that he will seek the DFL endorsement to challenge Minnesota District 11 Republican Sen. Bill Ingebrigtsen.


Thoreen, 64, of Morris, is retiring from his county position this summer after 12 years. He's also worked as a county administrator in three other counties during his career.

District 11 is comprised of Stevens, Douglas, Grant and Todd counties. Ingebrigtsen's first four-year term ends this year.
