Minnesota Republicans shaped the top of a high-stakes election ticket Saturday, endorsing investment banker Mike McFadden for U.S. Senate and backing county commissioner Jeff Johnson for governor as the party tries to end Democratic political dominance in the state.
Five Republicans running for Minnesota governor stood united Thursday in their opposition to a planned Senate office building but showed slight separation from one another on the hot-button issue of medical marijuana.
The Republican candidates for governor and senator who won bellwether straw polls among crowded fields sought Wednesday to capitalize on the early show of support from party activists.
The last GOP candidate to enter the Minnesota governor's race says he raised $150,000 in five weeks of 2013 and banked most of it.
Seifert said he was headed to a primary and would release his delegates.
Thompson withdrew after losing ground on the third ballot, and Seifert released his delegates as he announced he would join businessman Scott Honour and former House Speaker Kurt Zellers in skipping to a primary.
