Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - St. Louis County Commissioner Chris Dahlberg has his sights set on US Senator Al Franken's seat.
The Commissioner, who has held a seat on the board since 2008, said today he is throwing his hat in the ring for the Republican ticket in the 2014 Senate race.
An email this week from the CEO of Hubbard Broadcasting called Dalhberg a "strong candidate."
Dahlberg admits he's not well known outside Northeastern Minnesota, but plans on meeting as many people as he can in the next year.
He plans to make a formal announcement in the coming weeks.
