(KNSI/AP) - Republican state rep. Jeff Howe announced on KNSI he will run for Michelle Fischbach's open Minnesota Senate seat.
Howe joined Ox in the Afternoon Tuesday to make the announcement.
Howe says Republicans could really take control in St. Paul if they can win some keys positions.
"If we can hold the house, hold the senate and hopefully get a Republican governor, it will be the first time Minnesota's history."
Howe says he's a good fit for central Minnesota and the senate.
The special election for Fischbach's seat will be the only Minnesota Senate seat on the November ballot.
Howe is the first to put his name up for the seat.
No Democrat has entered the race so far.
