Now isn't that interesting? 58% of Mayor Randy Kelly's campaign contributions came from the suburbs of St. Paul, and only 26% from St. Paul proper. Rival Chris Coleman pulled in 30% from the suburbs, with 49% from St. Paul itself. We find the same math in the 2001 election when Kelly again pulled in the majority of his contributions from the suburbs, while rival Jay Benanav got the majority of his cash from St. Paul.
Maybe I know nothing about politics, but if you're running for mayor of St. Paul, shouldn't the majority of your support come from St. Paul? Isn't it a bit odd that Kelly seems to owe more to people who can't even vote for him?
