Hatch to announce running mate Sunday

Attorney General and DFL-endorsed gubernatorial candidate Mike Hatch will finally announce who will join him on the ticket as lieutenant governor Sunday afternoon at his Burnsville residence.

Hatch's announcement will occur a day after the Independence Party is expected to nominate former MPS Superintendent Peter Hutchinson as its standard-bearer for Governor at its convention at Midway Stadium before the St. Paul Saints minor league baseball game Saturday night. Opposing Hutchinson is former Jesse Ventura aide Pam Ellison.
