State Senator David Osmek officially jumps into the race for governor this morning. Osmek, a Republican from the west metro suburb of Mound, kicks off his campaign at the State Capitol followed by stops today in Mankato, Rochester and Austin. He’s the sixth Republican in the race: Christopher Chamberlin, Matt Dean, Keith Downey, Blake Huffman and Jeff Johnson announced earlier. And there are six Democrats already vying for *their* party’s nomination for governor. The election is over a year away, but the field is wide open because Governor Mark Dayton is not running for a third term.
