Grabbing most of the attention is the Republican presidential straw poll. All four candidates have spent time courting delegates.

State Representative John Ward of Brainerd tells KLKS News, he is backing former Congressman Rick Nolan. Although Ward maintains all three DFL-er in the contest are good candidates.
DFLers will caucus at the Brainerd High School, Greens will meet at the Brainerd Library, Independents will meet on-line over the next couple of weeks, and Republicans will meet at Forestview in Baxter, Nisswa Elementary School, Crosby High School and Crosslake Community School.
