MONTICELLO, Minn. (KNSI) Sartell Mayor Joe Perske is the DFL Party's endorsed candidate in the 6th District Congressional race.

Perske reached the 60-percent threshhold needed in the fourth round of balloting Saturday at the party convention in Monticello.

Two other Democrats were vying for the endorsement--Judy Adams of Circle Pines and Jim Read of Avon.

Republicans recently endorsed former state lawmaker Tom Emmer of Delano as their candidate. He narrowly lost the 2010 governor's race to Mark Dayton..

The candidates are seeking the congressional seat now held by Michele Bachmann, who is not seeking re-election.
