Sheldon Anderson, the former mayor of Wyoming, Minn., is the new head of state offices for Congressman Chip Cravaack.

He replaces former U.S. Sen. Rod Grams, who was serving as Cravaack’s temporary state director.

Anderson lost his bid for re-election to a fourth term as mayor of Wyoming in November. Earlier last year, he was running for the House seat in 17B but was defeated in the August primary.

Anderson owns Capital Investigations & Security Services in St. Paul, and he’d been appointed by former Gov. Tim Pawlenty to an advisory task force for Corrections Strategic Management Operations.
