First District: Clark tops Blakely in judicial race
In a rare defeat of an incumbent judge, Red Wing resident Larry Clark unseated Judge Timothy Blakely in the First Judicial District.
Clark, an assistant Dakota County attorney, said called the victory "an extreme honor."
"This is the highest honor I think an attorney can achieve," he said early today.
Late poll figures showed Clark leading Blakely 58 to 42 percent.
