(Minneapolis, MN) --We are hearing a lot about Detroit Lakes native Adam Theilen with the big NFC Championship game coming up in Philly on Sunday but another Detroit Lakes native is making some statewide headlines today as one of the leaders in the race for Minnesota's next Governor. Detroit Lakes native Jeff Johnson who is also a Hennepin County Commissioner and Congressman Tim Walz are the leaders in their respective parties for the Minnesota governor's seat. The information comes from a new "Star Tribune Minnesota Poll" with less than three weeks from precinct caucuses on February 6th. Walz is in front of the DFL field with 21 percent, while Johnson leads Republicans with 24 percent. Close to one third of DFL and more than half of GOP voters remain undecided.
