Email

Mark Thorson, saying he believes he is the most conservative in the race, wants to give voters a choice in the House 4A DFL primary.

"I've been focused on the Republican Party, and that's what I'm running against on Aug. 10, and that's what the people will decide," Thorson said.

First he must win the DFL primary against Rep. John Persell, DFL-Bemidji. The Nov. 2 opponent is Republican Richard Lehmann, Bemidji's major who faces no opposition in the Aug. 10 primary.
