Rep. Kriesel: No Senate run against Sieben; House is 'more rowdy'
State Rep. John Kriesel announced Wednesday he won't challenge Sen. Katie Sieben this fall, after he said he had been encouraged to run against the fellow Cottage Grove legislator.
Kriesel, a Republican, used Twitter to suggest he instead will run for a second House term in November.
"Thanks for the nice texts and emails, but I am not considering a MN Senate run at this time," Kriesel tweeted Wednesday morning. "The MN House is more rowdy. That's my style."
