Anderson expected to win backing for auditor; Byberg looks to radio personality from the metro area


MINNEAPOLIS -- Pat Anderson expected to win Republican Party backing Thursday to return to her job as Minnesota state auditor.

As this edition went to press, voting was not completed in her race.

Anderson, of Dellwood, was ousted from the office by Democrat Rebecca Otto four years ago.

She was joined in the race by state auditor's employee Jeff Wiita of Minnetonka, Mayor Randy Gilbert of Long Lake and ex-St. Paul school board member Tom Conlon.
