Sue Jeffers Names Running Mate


Sue Jeffers to Register for Republican Primary and Announce Running Mate at Press Conference

Ruth Hendrycks selected as Lt. Governor Candidate. Kiffmeyer expected to accept registration personally.

St. Paul, Minnesota - Sue Jeffers will enter her registration as a candidate for Governor of Minnesota on Monday July 17, 2006. Declaring her party affiliation as Republican, Ms. Jeffers will face Tim Pawlenty in the September 12 primary.

Jeffers said her registration is intended to give voters a clear choice against the status quo. "Tim Pawlenty has abandoned Republican principles and disenfranchised those of us who believe in limiting government growth. He was the leader of a legislative spending binge on Minnesota taxpayers, delivering the largest budget in State history topped off by a billion dollar bonding bill. It's time to give the voters a choice and a reason to come out and vote," Jeffers declared.

Sue Jeffers, and newly announced Lieutenant Governor Candidate Ruth Hendrycks, will file personally with Secretary of State Mary Kiffmeyer. Jeffers' press conference announcing her official candidacy and introducing Hendrycks as her running mate will take place in room 118 of the state office building at 10:30 AM. Jeffers and Hendrycks will register immediately following, and will be available for interviews afterwards.

Hendrycks is the president of an immigration reform group that advocates for reasonable legal immigration. She is a resident of Hanska, Minnesota, where she lives with her husband, Scott, of 26 years. They have three children. Hendrycks serves in a New Ulm civic organization and has been involved with several professional and volunteer organizations such as the 4-H and Girl Scouts, and is a certified mediator.

Jeffers said she asked Hendrycks to join her because of her passion for helping people, and her firm convictions. "Ruth has tremendous energy and enthusiasm," said Jeffers, "I'm thrilled to have her on the team. We're ready to go to work for the taxpayers."

Hendrycks said she was honored to have been chosen to run with Sue Jeffers. "Not only do I share her points of view," she said, "but I also feel that Minnesotans deserve to have important issues we care about front and center this election year. I look forward to serving Minnesota for the upcoming term."
