ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) —Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton has picked his new running mate and will announce the decision on Tuesday.

Dayton’s campaign said the new political team would appear at a union hall near the Capitol. The Democrat seeking a second term is replacing Lt. Gov. Yvonne Prettner Solon on this year’s ticket after she said she would only serve one term.

The new person wouldn’t take office until 2015 if Dayton wins re-election.

Contenders were thought to include his chief of staff Tina Smith and former House Majority Leader Tony Sertich.
