Second Congressional candidate Mike Obermueller will be hosting a meet-and-greet Thursday at the Gramercy Park Cooperative in Eagan. The meeting, scheduled for 10 a.m., is open to the public.
A former state legislator who represented the seat once held by Tim Pawlenty, Obermueller lives in Eagan with his wife and two teenage sons. He volunteers at St. Thomas Becket Catholic Church, as a youth basketball coach and is an active member of the Dakota County Regional Chamber of Commerce.
Obermueller, a Democrat, is running against incumbent Rep. John Kline (R) for control over the congressional district.
