Stanek to run for Sheriff again in 2018

Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek announced Saturday he will run for sheriff again in 2018.

Stanek made the announcement on his Facebook page Saturday afternoon. He wrote that serving as a peace officer is his life’s calling.

There had been speculation about whether or not Stanek would try and run for governor as a republican. Currently, there are seven GOP candidates that have registered for the state campaign finance board.
