ST. PAUL, Minn. (KMSP) -

Former Minnesota House Minority Leader Marty Seifert will make stops in Marshall, St. Paul and Mankato on Thursday to announce his campaign for governor.

Seifert, a Republican from Marshall, ran for governor in 2010. He was the early favorite for the Republican endorsement, but lost out to Tea Party-courting Tom Emmer at the GOP convention.

Seifert is an Obamacare opponent, having called for a vote in the Minnesota Legislature to have the attorney general sue to the federal government.

Republican Marty Seifert called for a vote to have the attorney general sue the federal government.

"We are potentially having our constituents fined and jailed for not buying health insurance," Seifert said after Congress approved the Affordable Care Act.

Seifert was first elected to the Minnesota House in 1996, serving seven terms before giving up his seat to run for governor in 2010.
