'Curveball' suspends Sviggum campaign
RED WING, Minn. -- Steve Sviggum's path to the governor's mansion may have hit a roadblock.
The Department of Labor and Industry commissioner's oversight of OSHA may qualify him as a federal employee -- a group forbidden to run for public office.
"This was a curveball out of left field," the former House speaker and Kenyon Republican said Thursday. "I'm kind of suspended right now."
