The only announced Republican candidate for Minnesota Secretary of State says he has new ideas for the statewide post.
Dennis Nguyen is the chairman of a Minneapolis investment firm who grew up in California after immigrating with his family in 1975 from Vietnam.
In Winona, one new idea Nguyen was promoting in his campaign is the establishment of a a one stop shop in the Secretary of State's office for job creation.
Nguyen also wants to insure integrity in elections by increasing election access for voters.
Nguyen says while he supports online voter registration, he believes it should have been established by approval from the legislature and not unilaterally by current Secretary of State Mark Ritchie who is not running for re-election.
