The Duluth newspaper carries a favorable biography of Steve Kelley
, who is seen as being the one-man Senate Education Committee.
Kelley won't say how he'll vote on Yecke when one is taken; it could come as early as Thursday. But her confirmation is widely expected to rise or fall with his decision because other members of the DFL majority are sure to follow their chairman's lead.
It's mostly fluff and an attempt to spin him as a moderate. Interestingly, he went to a private school and yet he's allowed to write standards!
