Tom Horner, the Independence Party’s endorsed canddiate for governor, picked Jim Mulder as his running mate. Mulder, who served as executive director of the Association of Minnesota Counties for twenty years before leaving the organization this year, says the state needs a change how it operates. He wants greater investment in technology and better streamlining of county services.
Horner’s selection of Mulder comes on the last day of candidate filings. His top rival in the August primary, Rob Hahn, announced on Sunday that Thomas Harens is his running mate.
