    You could ask Mark Dayton the same thing. Margaret Anderson Kelliher was the gubernatorial nominee by convention but still lost in the primary.

    Perhaps the dynamics of the gubernatorial race are different from a congressional race.

      However, he bypassed the process all together. This is not something that would happen in a congressional race. Also, gubernatorial caucuses are tiered with several steps in the process. Lower level races are a 1-step affair.
