The Drama Queen isn't covering the Minnesota GOP Chair's race in his blog, but he's a strong supporter of the incumbent, Ron Carey, and has said as much on his radio show, the Final Word. A couple commenters have posted about calls they received on his blog.

Michael, I know you are following the chair’s race closely and I wanted to see if you know anything about a polling call that both my husband and I received earlier this evening.
A caller called and asked if I was supporting anyone for deputy chair, I indicated I was not. The caller then asked if I would be open to supporting Joe Repya for deputy chair. At this point my interest is peaked as I am very confused. The caller was very polite and seemed in no way to be in any way partisan.
I really wish that I had asked who payed for the call, but I was so surprised at the content. I did call a few other people in my bpou and a few others did receive the call. I would be interested to see how wide this is and if it may be to targeted delegates.

I received a similar call this evening, as did two other delegates in my area. I have narrowed my choice for deputy chair to two candidates.
The caller was very polite, but they did press me on who I was supporting for deputy chair. When I said the names of who I was supporting at this time, the caller asked if I would consider supporting Joe Repya.
I didn’t ask who paid for the call.
Those delegates must be getting a fair amount of mail and phone calls.
