David Hann running for MnGOP Chair

David Hann, the former leader of the Minnesota Senate Republican Caucus, is jumping into the race to be the chair of the Republican Party of Minnesota.

Brian Bakst at Minnesota Public Radio:

Hann is entering the race to replace current GOP head Keith Downey, who is leaving after two terms. Hann helped engineer the Republican Party’s takeover of the Senate majority in November, but he lost his own re-election bid in his Eden Prairie district.

He said the 2018 stakes require a leader who knows the ropes and the grassroots. The governor’s office is the big prize next year, which could give his party full control of state government for the first time in modern history.
