Et tu, Keith

In a development that I have been expecting for a while, Rep. Keith Ellison switched his endorsement from Matt Entenza to Mayor R.T. Rybak. Rep. Ellison announced some time ago that he would support Entenza through the convention, but that he intended to support the endorsed candidate.

When Entenza withdrew this morning, the stage was set. The announcement was made on the convention floor and a press release was circulated to the delegates.

A brilliant tactical move by Team Rybak.
