Governor Bill Ingebrigtsen?

State Senator Ingebrigtsen, R-Alexandria, is contemplating the idea.

His name has been popping up in political circles as a possible contender for challenging DFL Governor Mark Dayton in 2014.


When contacted by the Echo Press Tuesday, Ingebrigtsen said he'll make a decision in the next four to six weeks whether to jump into the race. He plans to form a committee to explore the possibility.
