(ABC 6 News) -- Governor Mark Dayton will have some competition this fall from inside his own party.
Democrat Leslie Davis recently announced his campaign to take Dayton's seat.

He says the election will come down to the economy.

"there's 100,000 people or more than need a job and they're not going to get it with this particular administration. so we're challenging them in the DFL," Davis said.

Davis' running mate for Lieutenant Governor Gregory Soderberg is from Austin.

The pair plan to campaign this weekend at the Democratic convention in Duluth.
