Big news from Dave Thompson’s Gubernatorial campaign.
With a week to go before the Republican Party of Minnesota endorsing convention, GOP Sen. Dave Thompson has announced Brenton Hayden, founder of Renter’s Warehouse, as finance chair of his gubernatorial campaign.
Thompson, a state senator from Lakeville, also announced on Friday morning that Ryan Marvin, co-owner of Renter’s Warehouse, has agreed to take on an “active role” in his campaign for governor. Thompson is currently in a six-way race for the GOP nomination to take on DFL Gov. Mark Dayton this fall, but he’s one of only two major candidates promising to abide by the party’s decision next week.
“The competition in the Republican Party is fierce, however Dave has shown he has the sort of backbone and conservative values entrepreneurs like myself really appreciate,” Hayden said in a statement. “Dave has my full support.”
