MPR’s Midday will feature two of the Republican candidates for governor on Wednesday. State Representatives Tom Emmer of Delano and State Representatives Marty Seifert of Marshall will be on the show at 11am on Wednesday.
The delegates will meet on Friday to back a candidate. It’s critical for both Emmer and Seifert to win the endorsement since they both say they’ll drop out if they don’t win party backing.
