Thorson forces House 4A DFL primary election
Mark Thorson, a Bemidji businessman filed Tuesday for House 4A, forcing an Aug. 10 DFL primary with Rep. John Persell, DFL-Bemidji.
While he must beat Persell, who carries the DFL endorsement, it's Republican candidate Bemidji Mayor Richard Lehmann and the mayor's support of the Bemidji Regional Event Center that spurred Thorson to run.
