Green Party-Winona County
Paula Overby is a Minnesota politician, mother of three and former data analyst. She has run for election to the U.S. House of Representatives for District 2 twice, losing both times in 2014 and 2016 while increasing her percentage of votes.
The Green Party of Winona County hosted Overby at Acoustic Café in Winona Sunday afternoon for her to garner support and introduce herself to voters in hopes of officially announcing her candidacy for Minnesota U.S. Senator, taking on incumbent Sen. Amy Klobuchar as she seeks a third term in 2018. Overby is hoping for support and endorsement from the Minnesota Green Party for her run.
Upon her announcement, Overby will be the second candidate to officially announce a campaign against Klobuchar. In August, Republican candidate and State Rep. Jim Newberger announced he will run against Klobuchar for the seat.
Overby is poised to announce her candidacy in mid-November in Winona. Mueller said the Green Party of Winona will have an official date set later this week.
