LAKEVILLE, Minn. (AP) State Senator Dave Thompson is joining the growing list of Republicans who plan to run for governor next year.

Thompson tells The Associated Press he plans to file as a candidate Monday and launch his campaign Wednesday. He has represented Lakeville in the state Senate since 2011.

Thompson is an attorney and former talk radio host. He is a favorite of fiscal conservative and tea party activists.

Hennepin County Commissioner Jeff Johnson, former House Speaker Kurt Zellers and businessman Scott Honour are also running.
