There is an interesting story in the Star Tribune today about the possible future career of Republican Lt. Gov. Carol Molnau. The article said she is being mentioned as a possible candidate for the First District Congressional race. She would be taking on second-term DFL Congressman Tim Walz. The article notes that Molnau is also leaving open the possibility of running for governor in 2010.
Molnau has a controversial history. She was ousted 17 months ago from her post as head of the Minnesota Department of Transportation in the wake of the I-35W bridge collapse.
The article also quotes State Republican Party Chairman Tony Sutton as saying party officials think Walz may be vulnerable. It should be noted, however, that Walz soundly defeated Republican challenger Dr. Brian Davis last year garnering 62.5 percent of the vote compared to Davis' 32.9 percent.
