Gubernatorial candidate and Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson will no longer be attending Thursday's gubernatorial forum in Mankato.
A spokesperson for Swanson tells KEYC News 12 that Swanson's 87–year–old mother's lung collapsed last week and needs to be in Milwaukee Friday morning to meet with the surgeon.

With Swanson's absence, Thursday night's forum in Mankato will include Republican candidate Jeff Johnson and DFL candidates Tim Walz and Erin Murphy.
