Another Democrat has announced he’s running for governor of Minnesota, and more may queue up to try to succeed Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty before the 2010 campaign season kicks into high gear.

On Thursday, former state Rep. Matt Entenza announced that he is running.  

In a release, Etenza said his campaign “will revolve around three core principles: growing jobs by focusing on the potential of the clean energy economy, providing better educational opportunities to our children and those seeking higher education, and ensuring health care for all.”
