A second Democrat is vying for the chance to take on Byron Republican Rep. Duane Quam in 2016.
The Byron Review reports that Dale Amorosia has announced plans to run for the House District 25A seat. Amorosia could not be reached for comment.
Amorosia was born in Colorado and spent most of his school years in California, according to the article. He earned a bachelor's degree in economics and a master's in business administration from the University of San Diego. While in California, he worked on legislative political campaigns.
Amorosia has lived in Rochester for the past six years and currently works for Mayo Clinic as a food service cashier.
"I want to give voice to everyone. Based on my work experience, I know how to talk to people and I know how to listen and I'm a problem solver," Ambrosia told the newspaper.
He said he is primarily concerned about four issues: the economy, education, infrastructure and health care. He supports expanding the state's roads and bridges to accommodate the state's growing population.
Amorosia has not yet registered with the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board.
He is the second Democrat to jump into the race. Retired Mantorville teacher Linda Walbruch announced in June she was running for the seat.
Quam was elected to the Minnesota House in 2010, filling the seat vacated by Hayfield GOP Rep. Randy Demmer. Last year, he ran unopposed.
