This week DNC Chairman and Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine was in town to support DFLer Mark Dayton‘s candidacy for governor of Minnesota. In mid September, Republican Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal will be in Minneapolis to raise money for Republican candidate Tom Emmer.
The “Emmer for Governor Gathering,” posted to his campaign website, will feature the popular Louisiana governor as a “special guest.” A $500 contribution is required to attend the event at the Minneapolis Hilton hotel.
Jindal is serving his first term as governor of Louisiana, and was the youngest governor to be elected in United States history. He was 36 when he won in 2007.
