Elected Governor

J. A. O. Preus

The 1920 Minnesota gubernatorial election took place on November 2, 1920. Republican Party of Minnesota candidate J. A. O. Preus defeated Independent challenger's Henrik Shipstead and the Mayor of St. Paul, Laurence C. Hodgson. Shipstead narrowly lost to Preus in the Republican primary of that year[1] and challenged him in the general, beating the Democratic nominee but coming far short of winning the general.

Shipstead would soon join the Farmer–Labor Party, which didn't officially participate in this election, and would become the first party member to win statewide under that banner as Senator in 1922. The Farmer–Laborers would also become the main opposition party to the Democrats, displacing them until their political union in the 1940s.
