(ABC 6 News) - Republican State Senator David Osmek, of Mound, has announced he is suspending his campaign for Minnesota Governor.
In a press release, Osmek said, "The results of the Governor sample ballot at the Republican State Central Meeting on Dec. 2nd weren't what our campaign was hoping for and I strongly believe Republicans must unite behind the strongest candidate for Governor as soon as possible."
He went on to say he will fully support the Republican-endorsed candidate for Governor and that he will, "be a fighter for conservative values and will stand up to the failed liberal policies that are slowing our state's potential."
Over a dozen candidates have thrown their hat into the ring. The election will take place on Nov. 6, 2018.
