State Rep. Steve Simon is the DFL nominee for secretary of state.
Simon turned back two frequent candidates, Dick Franson and Gregg Iverson, in Tuesday's primary.
The St. Louis Park lawmaker is seeking to replace outgoing DFL Secretary of State Mark Ritchie, who chose not to seek a third term. He'll face Republican Dan Severson.
