An unlikely candidate for Ramsey County Sheriff-elect

An unlikely candidate won the election over incumbent Bob Fletcher on Tuesday, but claims he never envisioned following his father's footsteps as a St. Paul police officer or running for political office.

Ramsey County Sheriff-elect Matt Bostrom was only 7 when his father ran for the Minnesota Legislature while he helped Dan Bostrom go door-to-door campaigning on St. Paul's East Side reported the Pioneer Press.

Yet, after rising in the St. Paul Police Department to assistant chief and now achieving the position of Ramsey County Sheriff-elect, Bostrom thinks much differently.

Although Bostrom's position does not start until Jan. 3, The Star Tribune reported that his "up-and-at-'em" attitude is what got Bostrom his 57 percent victory over Fletcher.
