St. Paul, MN (NNCNOW.com) – Republican gubernatorial candidate Marty Seifert announced State Representative Pam Myhra (R-Burnsville) as his running mate in the 2014 race.

Myhra is known for her dedication in the Minnesota House and is a leader on issues such as education, early childhood development, and taxes. Myhra is married to her husband, Chuck, and they have three adult children.

Seifert describes Myhra as a strong conservative with a winning record.

“Pam is a winner, defeating an entrenched multi-term incumbent Democrat in a swing district. She works hard on behalf of her constituents in the district she now represents, and will be a major part of carrying our team across the finish line in 2014,” said Seifert.

Myhra said her decision to join the Seifert ticket was easy and she has the full support of her family and friends.

“I truly believe Marty Seifert is the right person for the challenges our state faces and is absolutely the best candidate to defeat Mark Dayton next fall,” Myhra said.

Representative Myhra will not seek the endorsement of her local Republican Party unit for re-election to the Minnesota House.

Myhra says her priority remains serving the people of District 56A, and she plans to campaign as her schedule permits.
