Anderson campaigns for Supreme Court


Minnesota Supreme Court Justice Barry Anderson — on a three-day campaign swing in northern Minnesota — is emphasizing his 30-plus years in law and his 14 years on the bench as he faces re-election against a former U.S. senator.

Appointed to the Minnesota Court of Appeals in 1998 and to the Minnesota Supreme Court in 2004, Anderson also served as Hutchinson city attorney for more than a decade.

He spoke with a Brainerd Dispatch reporter in Brainerd Friday afternoon.
