4 Republicans in governor chase to debate


ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Republican voters still undecided about who to back in next month’s primary for Minnesota governor have a chance to hear all four contenders in the same spot.

The candidates looking to land their party nomination were set Wednesday to participate in a debate on Minnesota Public Radio.

There has been no break-away favorite among business executive Scott Honour, Hennepin County Commissioner, Jeff Johnson, former House Minority Leader, Marty Seifert and former House Speaker, Kurt Zellers.

The hour-long debate is less than two weeks from the Aug. 12 primary that will determine Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton’s fall challenger.

All but Seifert were also meeting up for an evening debate Wednesday hosted by KTLK-AM.
