State Senator Julianne Ortman scored a win in Saturday’s GOP straw poll as she looks to challenge Democratic Senator Al Franken in 2014. Ortman topped businessman Mike McFadden and several others, including state Representative Jim Abeler and St. Louis County Commissioner Chris Dahlberg in the poll. In other voting, Hennepin County Commissioner Jeff Johnson bested his GOP rivals in the non-binding straw poll in a bid to challenge Democratic Governor Mark Dayton. State Senator Dave Thompson came in second in that poll.
