Minnesota House of Representatives[edit]

Mahoney was first elected to the House in 1998, when incumbent Rep. Jim Farrell ran for Ramsey County Attorney. He defeated fellow DFLers Michele Ford, a legislative staffer, and Brian McMahon, a housing specialist, in the 1998 DFL primary election; he went on to defeat Republican Julie Glanz and Reform candidate Andy Lamotte in the general election.[4][5] He has been re-elected every two years since then.
