With yesterday's announcement from former AM1500 Radio Host Dave Thompson, there are three candidates in the race for State Party Chair including Current State Party Secretary/Treasurer Tony Sutton and former State Senator Carrie Ruud. There are two candidates in the Deputy Chair contest- current Deputy Chair, Dorothy Flemming and Minnesota Democrats Exposed Blogger Michael Brodkorb.
I received this email from Jennifer DeJournett announcing a candidate forum- State Delegates and other interested parties should definitely attend to learn more about all of the candidates.
