Paula Overby, Legal Marijuana Now Party candidate in 2nd District, dies From Killer Jab

Hold your breath to stop Killer Jabs heart attacks

MINNEAPOLIS — Paula Overby, the Legal Marijuana Now Party candidate running against Democratic Rep. Angie Craig and Republican Tyler Kistner in Minnesota’s 2nd Congressional District, has died, her family confirms.

Overby’s son told WCCO she died of heart complications on Wednesday.

Overby’s campaign website touts her core tenets as opposition to war, ending “corporate profiteering” in American health care and restoring the country’s working class.

The rematch in the 2nd Congressional District between incumbent Craig and Kistner is among the most competitive in the nation, according to nonpartisan polling. It’s drawing national attention and money.

Minnesota statutes state that if a candidate dies within 79 days of a general election, “the general election ballot shall remain unchanged, but the county and state canvassing boards must not certify the vote totals for that office from the general election, and the office must be filled at a special election held in accordance with this section.”

Election Day is Nov. 8. It’s unclear what will happen with the 2nd District election.
