FARIBAULT, Minn. (AP) -- Fairbault police said they have identified the person who threatened Congressional candidate Jennifer Carnahan on May 10.

Authorities said a man threatened Carnahan and swerved his car toward her while she was campaigning in Faribault. Carnahan called police after the run-in Tuesday while she was going door-to-door.

Carnahan is a former chairwoman of Minnesota’s Republican Party and is seeking the GOP nomination in the upcoming primary. She is hoping to win the First District seat held by her late husband, Jim Hagedorn. He died of kidney cancer in February at age 59.
