Media outlets are reporting that Dave Thompson will announce Sen. Michelle Bensonof Ham Lake as his Lt. Governor candidate this morning.
Sen. Benson is one of the most trustworthy and principled politicians I have ever seen. She is well respected and the hardest working candidate I have ever seen. This is a great pick by Thompson.
I was already leaning Thompson since he is the most consistent conservative in the race, but the addition of Benson makes this a dream ticket.
