Another name is added to the field of Republicans running for Governor.

“My name is Michelle Benson, and I’m running to be Minnesota’s next governor, a brighter future for Minnesota starts right now. Lets get to work.”

Benson, the state senator from Ham Lake, posted a campaign ad to You Tube late Tuesday that features images of her cutting weeds from a field taking aim at what she calls  “radical leftist policies” like defunding the police and the reaction to COVID-19 by Governor Tim Walz.
