Emmer picks Meeks

Republican gubernatorial candidate Tom Emmer will announce later this morning that he’s selected Metropolitan Council member Annette Meeks as his running mate, according to a person close to the campaign. Meeks, who founded the conservative think tank The Freedom Foundation of Minnesota, also served as Deputy Chief of Staff to former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

Emmer will make the announcement official at 9 this morning. He’s vying for the Republican endorsement against fellow legislator Marty Seifert.
