Minnesota scientist cites COVID shutdowns in governor’s candidacy | app


ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota scientist and entrepreneur Hugh McTavish announced his candidacy for governor as the third-party candidate on Thursday, citing division in state government and what he called poor management of the COVID-19 pandemic.

McTavish, author and inventor, founded the pharmaceutical companies Squarex and IGF Oncology, which are developing a topical drug to prevent cold sores and a targeted drug for the treatment of cancer, respectively. He is running as a candidate for the Independence-Alliance Party – the same party of former wrestler Jesse Ventura that caused a historic upset from Republican Norm Coleman and Democrat Skip Humphrey in the 1998 gubernatorial race.
