Permac Industries CEO Darlene Miller (R) is considering running. Permac is an aerospace-focused small-part machine shop.
“Miller, who is known in GOP circles but has not had a prominent political role, would be the sixth Republican” in the race. Miller has given small contributions to Rep. John Kline (R) and former Sen. Norm Coleman (R) in the past. She also serves on the President’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness. (St. Paul Pioneer Press)
