Johnson's running mate wants to improve job climate


Improving Minnesota's job climate was listed Friday as a top priority by the Republican-endorsed Minnesota lieutenant governor candidate, Bill Kuisle of rural Stewartville.

A full-time farmer who lives in the Rochester area, Kuisle served in the Minnesota House of Representatives from 1997-2005. He was chosen as a running mate by endorsed GOP candidate Jeff Johnson, a Hennepin County commissioner.
