Republican Party Chair Tony Sutton announced on Twitter that he's running for reelection as MNGOP Chair.
"I have decided to run for a 2nd term as State Chair of the @mngop - we have accomplished a lot, but much remains to be done."
Sutton's first term as Party Chair was mixed. Republicans won control of both the Minnesota House and Senate and elected GOP Rep. Chip Cravaack. But the GOP lost the big prize when Democrat Mark Dayton won the governor's race over Tom Emmer.
