UNDATED--Republican candidate for Governor Jeff Johnson today announced Donna Bergstrom as his running mate for Lieutenant Governor. Bergstrom says she and Johnson “share a vision and that the proper role of government is to serve and not bully. Our freedoms as Americans and Minnesotans are non-negotiable. Also, in the bigger picture, I couldn’t agree more with Jeff’s theme of truly reforming government.” Bergstrom is a retired Marine Lt. Colonel and a member of the Red Lake Nation. She was born and raised in Carlton, Minnesota. She ran for a state Senate seat in Duluth–in a district Republicans have not won for decades in 2016–and lost.
