It appears that Minnesota Libertarian Party gubernatorial candidateis seeking the GOP nomination, too. :
Jeffers was endorsed by the Libertarian Party last Saturday but delayed accepting the nomination because she said she wanted to challenge Gov. Tim Pawlenty for the Republican endorsement.
Jeffers said if she receives 41 percent of the vote at the Republican convention she can choose to run in a primary against the governor or collect 2,000 valid signatures to get on the ballot as a Libertarian candidate.
“People are really frustrated now,” Jeffers said. “The government has let them down and people are feeling disenfranchised in both parties. It’s similar to the political climate when Ventura ran.”
I haven’t looked at how she might poll within the Republican Party (or more importantly, at a state GOP convention), but this is an interesting turn of events. I’ve got several contacts on the inside of that campaign, so I’ll certainly be asking them for the inside scoop.
