Hepola declines to file for governor’s race

Former WCCO Radio host and KARE 11 reporter Cory Hepola won’t file for the Minnesota governor’s race.

Hepola, who announced his run for governor as a third-party candidate in March, said Tuesday afternoon — shortly before the deadline to file for state office — that he decided to not file for governor.

“However, I will continue to promote and build support for the bold, new ideas on which my campaign was built and to create the political vehicle that can transform proposals to policy,” Hepola said in a statement.
