Minnesota GOP Convention Saturday results

Roch_nightFor the Senate, Mike McFadden won endorsement on the 10th ballot. That’s rather remarkable, for somebody who announced that he wouldn’t abide by the endorsement if it didn’t go to him. It’s unclear, whether there will be a real primary challenge. Based on all that I’ve seen, there are likely some very unhappy and disgusted right-wing GOPers, Tea Partiers and Paulbots and so forth, right now, and they would like a chance to take this guy out on Aug. 12. It seems less than 50-50 at this time that he will be challenged, though. I believe that potential challengers, like Jim Abeler, only have a day or two to make up their minds. And I’m also pretty sure that his main competition for the endorsement, Chris Dahlberg and Julianne Ortman, have said they’re done.
Jeff Johnson was endorsed for governor. It looks right now like the primary will include him, Marty Seifert, Scott Honour, and Kurt Zellers. Honour and Zellers bypassed the endorsement process. Seifert didn’t, and apparently was subjected to a good many boos and catcalls when it was announced that he decided after all that he would diss the endorsement and go to a primary, too.
