Effort afoot for repeat Minn. gov run by Emmer

Posted:

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Some Republicans are trying for a repeat campaign for Minnesota governor by former state Rep. Tom Emmer.

A new draft effort surfaced last week to get the GOP's 2010 nominee to seek a 2014 rematch with Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton. Emmer lost a narrow election to Dayton two years ago.

The draft campaign was registered with campaign regulators. It is led by a former House colleague, Doug Wardlow of Eagan. Emmer didn't immediately return an email message on Monday gauging his interest. He now hosts a daily radio show.

Several Republicans are sizing up a bid for governor, but they haven't taken any formal steps. There is also a draft campaign urging on Senate Minority Leader David Hann.
