Candidate for Governor Instead Running for Open Congressional Seat

A candidate for governor is renouncing his candidacy and is instead running for Rep. Jim Hagedorn’s open seat.

Brandon Millholand-Corcoran announced Friday that he is renouncing his candidacy for Minnesota Governor and is instead running for Minnesota’s First Congressional District.

According to a news release, Millholand-Corcoran stated that he had been considering running for Congress only after a voter had approached him before Congressman Hagedorn’s death.   He goes on to say that he had never given a though to running for congress before but feels that he could do more good in Congress than as governor.

Millholand-Corcoran is from Jackson, Minnesota.
