A News Tribune-sponsored candidate forum for Senate District 11, scheduled for 11 a.m. Thursday at duluthnewstribune.com, has been canceled due to the special session of the Minnesota Legislature.

Sen. Jason Rarick, of Brook Park, informed the News Tribune on Tuesday morning that he’ll be in meetings related to the special session and will be unable to attend the virtual debate.

The News Tribune Editorial Board is attempting to schedule private virtual meetings with Rarick and DFL challenger Michelle Lee, of Moose Lake, in lieu of the forum.
