Johnson stakes out lead in GOP governor primary

August 13, 2014

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Endorsed Republican Jeff Johnson has an early edge as votes are counted in the Republican primary for Minnesota governor.

The Hennepin County commissioner was ahead as one-fifth of the vote was tabulated Tuesday. His closest competitor was former House Speaker Kurt Zellers followed by businessman Scott Honour and former House Minority Leader Marty Seifert (SY'-furt).

The winner will take on Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton, who cruised to the nomination in his second term bid.

The party endorsement that Johnson secured at a spring state convention gave him access to the GOP voter list and get-out-the-vote efforts.
