State Rep. Tom Emmer will name his running mate Tuesday morning, just days before he seeks the Republican Party’s endorsement for governor at the state convention in Minneapolis.

His announcement will come at 9 a.m. at the State Office Building on the Capitol grounds. Any thoughts on who he’ll choose for lieutenant governor?

Emmer’s rival for the nomination, State Rep. Marty Seifert, announced in February that Anoka County Commissioner Rhonda Sivaraja is his choice for running mate.
