Tony Sutton cruised to re-election as party chair of the Minnesota GOP.
Sutton took over the chair in 2009 and lead the party to controlling both the Minnesota House and Senate for the first time in 38 years after the 2010 elections reports the Associated Press.
He must now start organizing support for former Gov. Tim Pawlenty and Rep. Michele Bachmann who are both seeking the Republican presidential nomination reports the Star Tribune.
Sutton will also begin searching for a candidate to oppose Sen. Amy Klobuchar reports the Star Tribune.
