Security increased at 4 polls for contentious race

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — City election officials have increased security at four precincts in Minneapolis where a contentious state house race will be decided.

Sergeant-at-arms will monitor and maintain order, if needed, in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood where long-serving DFL Rep. Phyllis Kahn faces a challenge from school board member Mohamud Noor. He's trying to become the first Somali-American to win a Minnesota state house seat.

The primary will likely send the winner to the Legislature in heavily Democratic Minneapolis.

Minnesota Public Radio News (http://bit.ly/1nLk0yO ) says the race has included accusations of voter fraud and intimidation. A fight even broke out at a DFL precinct caucus earlier this year.
