Seifert brings campaign for governor to Willmar


WILMMAR – If Republicans are going to win elections in Minnesota they’ll need votes from non-Republicans, said former House minority leader Marty Seifert, who was in Willmar today seeking local support for his own campaign for governor.

Seifert, of Marshall, failed to get the Republican endorsement when he ran for governor in 2010.

This time around, Seifert said if he doesn’t get the endorsement he may run in the primary.
