Tony Sutton, the Minnesota Republican chairman who’s been working for free the past two years, will now be paid $100,000 a year for doing the job, the Star Tribune reports.

He didn’t take a paycheck from the party while running the Baja Sol Mexican restaurant chain, but left that job to briefly run a political consulting firm, the paper said.

He will be paid $8,000 a year less than the DFL state chair, Ken Martin, leading Sutton to tell the paper: “The Republicans are getting more bang for their buck.”
