Republican Tom Emmer got some major support in his quest to become a Republican National Committeeman. GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann, GOP Rep. John Kline and former GOP Sen. Norm Coleman announced they’re supporting Emmer’s candidacy.
“These leaders know the amount of fundraising, organization and effort that are required to win federal races. Therefore, their endorsements acknowledge the energy and assets they believe I offer to the state party as National Committeeman to the RNC,” Emmer wrote.
Emmer, who lost his bid for governor in 2010 to Democrat Mark Dayton, is seeking the post being vacated by Brian Sullivan. Former MNGOP Executive Director Ben Golnik and Hennepin County Commissioner Jeff Johnson are also running for the post. Delegates will vote on the position at the April State Party Central Committee meeting.
