A source close to GOP state Rep. Laura Brod, of New Prague, said she will run for governor. The source said she’ll make an official announcement in the next week or two. Brod was actively courting activists at Saturday’s MNGOP State Party Central Committee meeting. At the time, she said she was gauging interest on a run.
Brod joins a growing list of candidates who are officially in the race. They include GOP state Rep. Marty Seifert, former MN House Speaker Steve Sviggum, former State Auditor Pat Anderson, state Rep. Paul Kohls and former state Rep. Bill Haas.
