(ABC 6 News) – Representative Tina Liebling announced that she is running for election to the Minnesota House of Representatives in the new House District 24B.

She has represented part of Rochester since 2004 when she became the first person from Olmsted County ever elected to the Minnesota Legislature on the DFL ticket.

“I will miss representing the people east of U.S. 52 and north of U.S. 14 who I have served for 18 years, but I look forward to meeting voters in south Rochester and Rochester Township who I now hope to represent," Liebling said.

Liebling, who is chair of the House’s Health Policy and Finance Committee, noted “I have spent much of my career working on health and human services issues that deeply impact our community and the entire state. The pandemic has revealed how much more work is needed to protect and improve the health of Minnesotans. If elected in November, I will continue to fight for quality, affordable health care for all.”

Liebling will seek the DFL endorsement for the 24B seat this Sunday, March 27 at the Senate District 24 DFL convention in Kasson.
