ST. PAUL -- Minnesota's campaign season officially began today.

As she has for five elections, Rep. Joyce Peppin, R-Rogers, stayed overnight on her lawn chair in a hallway outside the secretary of state's office to be first in line to file candidate paperwork. Before the office opened at 8 a.m., three others also were in line, the first of many throughout Minnesota to file for federal, state, local and judicial offices by 5 p.m. June 5.
