Schiff drops out of mayoral race, backs Hodges


Gary Schiff has dropped out of the mayoral race and thrown his support behind Betsy Hodges.

The 9th Ward City Council member had a third place finish at the Minneapolis DFL City Convention on Saturday. He withdrew his name from the third ballot at the convention and formed an alliance with Hodges in an effort to block Mark Andrew from securing 60 percent of the delegates’ votes to win the party’s endorsement.
