Longtime commission allies tangle for Fargo mayor


FARGO (AP) - The man who's somewhat of a Fargo folk hero for leading the city through numerous floods expected his quest for a third straight term as mayor to be about margin of victory. 

Then Dennis Walaker's longtime ally on the city commission handed him a campaign.

Walaker's being challenged by Brad Wimmer, a jewelry store owner who has recruited some of the city's biggest names to raise money and promote his candidacy. 

After winning with more than 90 percent of the vote four years ago, Walaker finds himself mailing out letters to supporters and outlining his accomplishments to dispute Wimmer's notion that the mayor's resume has very little beyond flood fame. 

Either way, the mayor says he's not losing any sleep over the race that will be decided on June 10.
