A Duluth DFL'er has announced his plans to run for re-election to the Minnesota House of Representatives.

Rep. Erik Simonson made the announcement on his website Monday. He wrote "I announce my campaign for re-election. The past months spent representing both central and western Duluth in the House of Representatives has been an absolutely incredible and inspiring experience. I believe I have worked hard on behalf of my constituency and I am asking for your support to continue those efforts. I am proud to represent all of you in St. Paul, and I do my best to make decisions based on my own principles coupled with the needs of all Duluthians."

Simonson was elected to the District 7B seat in November of 2012. The seat was previously held by DFL'er Kerry Gauthier. The race made headlines when Gauthier got caught up in a sexual encounter with a 17-year-old male and decided not to run for re-election.
