St. Paul's all-virtual DFL city convention wrapped up Friday with no endorsement being given to two candidates seeking a four-year school board seat.
Jim Vue, the board's vice chairman, and James Farnsworth, a member of the University of Minnesota Board of Regents, fell short of the 60% delegate support needed for the party nod.
Earlier, DFLers endorsed three school board candidates, leaving Vue and Farnsworth to compete for support in a second round of balloting that ended Thursday. The final tally had Vue at 58.7%, Farnsworth at 35.6% and "no endorsement" at 5.7%.
The filing period for the city's mayoral and school board elections opens Tuesday.
The final slate of DFL-endorsed candidates includes: Mayor Melvin Carter, who is seeking a second term in office; Halla Henderson and Uriah Ward, who aim to fill two of three four-year school board seats up for election; and Clayton Howatt, who wants to complete the remaining two years of the seat vacated by former member Steve Marchese.
