Osmek, a state senator from Mound, says he decided to drop out after discussing prospects with family and supporters over the holidays.

Osmek finished fifth of seven candidates in a straw poll at the party’s State Central Committee meeting in December.

He said he’ll support whomever the party endorses.

Gov. Mark Dayton, a Democrat, isn’t seeking another term.
