Chris Kluwe endorses Gary Schiff for mayor


Gary Schiff’s campaign for Minneapolis mayor got a kick Thursday when the City Council member announced an endorsement from former Minnesota Viking punter Chris Kluwe.

“The eight years that I was in Minnesota I got to know the state very well, and I think Gary would be a good choice going forward,” Kluwe said in a conference call with reporters.

The two met for the first time over breakfast about a month ago. Both said they held similar values, and Kluwe praised Schiff’s long-term vision for the city.
