ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A Minnesota state senator mentioned prominently as a running mate for Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton says she doesn’t want the job.

Sen. Katie Sieben of Cottage Grove said Friday that she wants to remain in her current role for a term that runs through 2016. Dayton plans to name a new ticket companion because current Lt. Gov. Yvonne Prettner Solon is retiring after this year regardless of whether her boss wins a new four-year term.

Other prospects include Dayton Chief of Staff Tina Smith and former House Majority Leader Tony Sertich, who now leads an Iron Range agency. Dayton said Friday he would name his running mate as soon as next week.

Sieben is an assistant majority leader currently in her third term.
